Mark D. Heller

Steiner Invitation Series Speaker


Mark D. Heller is an Irving Innovation Fellow at the Harvard Graduate School of Design for 2019-2020, and an Adjunct Professor in Architecture at Wentworth Institute of Technology. Mark received his MLA and MUP from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. As an Irving Innovation Fellow, Mark is devising an alternative mode of interrogating landscape through densities and voids of electromagnetic bandwidth. Working predominantly through geographic-scale visualization, Mark explores how classical interpretations of the landscape sublime might be resurrected today not through the physicality of nature, but rather in the deepest trenches of the electromagnetic terrain. At CMU, Heller spoke to students in Professor Sinan Goral’s Responsive Spaces and Media Architecture course in the School of Architecture.
