California College of the Arts (CCA) | Ideal X Design


Antje Steinmuller is Associate Professor at California College of the Arts where she chairs the Bachelor of Architecture program and co-directs the Urban Works Agency, CCA’s urbanism research lab. Her research explores the role of design at the intersection of citizen-led and city-regulated processes in the production of urban space – from new typologies of urban commons and new forms of collective living, to the agency of architecture vis-a-vis the current housing crisis. She is also a co-founder of ideal X, a design consultancy focused on the collective potentials of urban spaces in transition. Most recently, her work has been exhibited at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Milwaukee Art Museum, the Seoul Biennale of Architecture and Urbanism, SPUR Urban Center, and the Venice Biennale of Architecture.
