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 the Syracuse University School of Architecture, and previously at The New School’s Parsons School of Constructed Environments.

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