Lindsay Harkema is a New York-based architect, educator, and co-founder of Studio Excultura. Working between existing architectural, cultural, and social conditions, a common thread of her design projects and scholarship is the ever-shifting relationship between the built environment and the human ecology that occupies it, and the opportunities this dynamic creates for territorial, spatial, and political exceptions. She holds a Bachelor of Science in Architecture degree from Washington University in St. Louis, and a Master of Architecture degree from the Rice University School of Architecture, where she was awarded the Morris Pitman Award in Architecture. From 2012 to 2013, she was a research fellow at the Strelka Institute for Media Architecture and Design in Moscow, Russia. Prior to founding Studio Excultura she worked for Leeser Architecture, Diller Scofidio and Renfro, Architecture + Information, and Rice + Lipka Architects. She currently teaches at City College of New York and Barnard College, and previously at Syracuse University School of Architecture and The New School’s Parsons School of Constructed Environments.

She is a registered architect in the state of New York and NCARB certified.
