Thomas Forget is an Associate Professor and the Director of Undergraduate Programs in the School of Architecture. His work, broadly speaking, explores intersections between public space and architectural projection. In 2000, he founded Ciotat Studio, an interdisciplinary design firm based in New York City that executes projects at a variety of scales, from video installations to urban planning proposals. Following the publication of his first book, The Construction of Drawings and Movies (Routledge, 2013), he has published on topics relating to new media, such as Building Information Modeling and GPS-enable mapping systems, and his forthcoming work examines theoretical and practical questions regarding GIS. He teaches design studios and seminars in history, theory, and criticism. Education: B.A. in History of Art, Columbia University (1993); Master of Environmental Design, Yale University (1995); M.Arch., Princeton University (1998).
