AD Interviews: Mark Wigley

A few months ago we interviewed Mark Wigley, Dean of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation.

In 2005, Wigley founded Volume Magazine together with Rem Koolhaas and Ole Bouman, one of the most interesting architecture magazines addressing current society and cultural affairs.

So far, is one of the most passionate deans I´ve known when it comes to students, empowering them to go always further, which has resulted on a very innovative architecture school.

    I am only one third of the way through this interview, and have already filled two pages of a notebook- thank you for bringing us this interview, and at the risk of giving you more work and sounding far too greedy- it would be so useful to have transcripts of these to download.. should your funds and time ever expand to accommodate this it would add a very useful dimension to these interviews.
