Mason White is Partner of Lateral Office in Toronto; Assistant Professor in the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design at the University of Toronto; and 2013 Howard Friedman Visiting Associate Professor of Practice in the Department of Architecture at UC Berkeley. White received his Bachelor of Architecture from Virginia Tech and his Master of Architecture from Harvard Graduate School of Design. He has taught at Harvard University, Cornell University, Ohio State University, and California College of the Arts. He previously worked at Moncaelli Press (New York), Machado Silvetti Associates (Boston), and Panter Hudspith (London) before forming LATERAL OFFICE. White is convinced that there are new roles for architecture out there that we do not know because we are not looking, really looking.
White is the recipient of the 2008-09 Arthur Wheelwright Fellowship from Harvard Graduate School of Design.
This event is part of the 2013 CED Lecture Series, which features noted visiting academics and professionals from a broad range of environmental design fields. Most lectures are free, and all are open to the public.
