New York-based architect and co-founder of WORKac, Amale Andraos, has been selected as the new dean of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation (GSAPP), the Columbia Spectator has reported. Andraos will assume the position on September 1, replacing Mark Wigley who announced his retirement last year.

“Columbia is already a leader in addressing the challenges of high-speed urbanization around the globe and I believe it can lead in recasting architecture in dialogue with our urban societies and the natural environment,” Androas was quoted as saying. “This is a School whose creativity and diversity of global perspectives makes it an ideal place to consider these large issues and ideas, and I am honored by the opportunity to continue and expand on work that Mark Wigley has done in welcoming people like me to the conversation.”

Andraos has been an associate professor of architecture, planning and preservation at GSAPP since 2011, and her firm has carried out numerous projects such as the Children’s Museum of the Arts in New York, an Assembly Hall in Central Africa and an edible schoolyard for New York’s PS216. Andraos has also taught at Harvard, Princeton, Parsons School of Design, and the University of Pennsylvania.
