Whitney Moon


Whitney Moon is Associate Professor of Architecture and Chair of the Ph.D. Program in Architecture at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where she teaches history, theory, and design. Her research interests reside in twentieth and twenty-first century art and architecture, with an emphasis on theatricality, performance, and ephemeral works. Specifically, Moon examines architectural objects, installations, and exhibitions and their relationship to the social, political, economic, and environmental conditions that shape them. Currently, she is working on a collection of essays about the rise and fall of pneumatic architecture in the 1960s and 70s entitled “Who Let the Air Out?," as well as co-curating a forthcoming exhibition on the architectural works of Willis & Lillian Leenhouts. Moon’s recent writings have been published in e-flux, JAE, LOG, PRAXIS, Room One Thousand, The Other Architect, Possible Mediums, and Constructing Building Enclosures. A registered architect in California and Wisconsin, Moon earned her Ph.D. in Architectural History & Theory from University of California, Los Angeles, and B.Arch from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo.
