Sydney Maubert

Sydney Maubert is an architect, artist, muralist, scholar, and teacher.  She directs Studio Maubert, an architectural, artistic, and scholarly practice exploring Black, Latin, Indigenous, and Fem modes of cultural and spatial production.

She holds post-professional and professional degrees in architecture from Yale (2022) and the University of Miami (2020), with double minors in writing and art. She is the founder of Sydney R. Maubert LLC, her art and mural practice. Studio Maubert is Maubert's interdisciplinary architectural, artistic, and scholarly practice researching questions at the intersection of architecture, geography, and policy — including urban morphologies and racialized habitation patterns in Miami and New York, and their intertwined legacies with colonialism and genocide. The work is largely animated by Black studies, decolonial studies, fugitive practice, history, and cultural geography. 

A recipient of Cornell's Strauch Fellowship, she will teach and produce research (Fall 2022–ongoing) interested in questions surrounding housing, race, geography, and unruliness. She worked as an intern at Bernheimer Architecture (2021–22) and  Trelles Cabarrocas (2018, 2019). She has received several awards including the Yale Moulton Andros Award (2022) and the University of Miami Alpha Rho Chi Award (2020).

Her writing can be found in Yale's Paprika! and she was published as an editorial research assistant to Dr. Victor Deupi in Transformations in Classical Architecture (2016–2018). 

She assisted teaching courses with Dark Matter University, Yale University, CCNY, and Morgan State University under Jerome Haferd, Curry Hackett, and Justin G. Moore, as well as at the University of Miami's School of Architecture where she also worked in the Dean's Office (2015–2020).
