Kirk Wooller is a Director at Remake Architecture and an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he teaches design studio and architectural history and theory courses. Kirk is a registered architect (New Zealand) and has practiced in Auckland, New York, London, and Chicago. He received his BArch (1995) and MArch (1997) from the University of Auckland, New Zealand, and his MA [History and Theory] (2006) and PhD (2010) from the Architectural Association. His doctoral thesis “Changing the Criteria for Innovation: The Architecture Magazine as a Project, 1956–2006″ showed how the diminishing role of judgment in today’s “innovative” architectural publications is changing the criteria for innovation in ways that run counter to the past hundred and fifty years of architectural knowledge production. He is the recipient of The Frederick Ost Scholarship in Architecture (2001), The William Chick Masters Scholarship in Architecture (2005) and The William Chick Doctoral Scholarship in Architecture (2007). He has organized several exhibitions and symposia, and is the author/editor of two books, 20/20: Editorial Takes on Architectural Discourse (AA Publications, 2011) and Propositions: Ideology in Transparency (AA PhD Program, 2011).
