Masha Panteleyeva

Masha Panteleyeva has taught art history, architectural history, and design, and served as a design critic at Cornell University, Princeton University, Pratt Institute, the School of Architecture of The Cooper Union, and Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation. Prior to her academic career Panteleyeva worked as an architect at Diller Scofidio and Renfro and Cook and Fox Architects, and as an editor and writer at the Architect's Newspaper. Her work has been supported by the Graham Foundation, the Canadian Centre for Architecture, as well as Princeton University, and has been featured at the Venice Biennale, the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw, and publications such as Open City (Charta, 2015), Single Story Urbanism (Lars Müller, 2009), the ARPA Journal, Constructs, Pidgin magazine, and the Architect's Newspaper. Her upcoming book NER: City of the Future examines the evolution of Soviet formal architectural language as a discoursive tool used to outline fundamental differences between the socialist urban fabric and its Western counterpart. In December 2018 Panteleyeva curated the exhibition Tracing the Future City at the State Moscow Architecture Museum and is currently directing a documentary film about Soviet experimental architecture in the 1960s.

Panteleyeva received her Ph.D. and M.Arch.II degrees from Princeton University and her B.Arch. from the School of Architecture of The Cooper Union.
