Design Trust is thrilled to welcome Cole Roskam as our new Pearl River Delta Design Council, and Zoë Ryan as our new International Advisory Council.
Roskam is an associate professor of architectural history and theory in the Department of Architecture at the University of Hong Kong, where he has taught since 2010. His research examines architecture's role in mediating moments of transnational interaction and exchange between China and other parts of the world.
Ryan is the John H. Bryan Chair and Curator of Architecture and Design at the Art Institute of Chicago. She is interested in exploring the impact of design on society, and her recent exhibitions include: Making Place: The Architecture of David Adjaye (2015), Building: Inside Studio Gang Architects (2012); Fashioning the Object: Bless, Boudicca, and Sandra Backlund (2012); Bertrand Goldberg: Architecture of Invention (2011); and Hyperlinks: Architecture and Design (2010).
Roskam and Ryan are excited to work with Design Trust to support and enable talented designers and research scholars to positively impact our community.
