Critic
Elisa Iturbe is a critic at the Yale School of Architecture (YSoA), where she teaches design studios and a seminar titled The City & Carbon Modernity, which explores the spatial expression of our dominant energy paradigm in both urban and architectural form. At Yale, she also coordinates the dual-degree program between YSoA and the Yale School of the Environment. In addition, she teaches at The Cooper Union, where she teaches design studio, formal analysis, and a course on the relationship between urban form and fossil capitalism. Her writings have been published in Log, Perspecta, New York Review of Architecture and Dearq. Most recently she guest edited Log 47, titled Overcoming Carbon Form, and co-wrote a book with Peter Eisenman titled Lateness.
