California College of the Arts says…

 Keller Easterling is an American architect, urbanist, writer, and teacher. She is concerned with issues of urbanism, architecture, and organization as they relate to globalization. She is currently an associate professor of architecture at Yale University. Her latest book, Enduring Innocence: Global Architecture and Its Political Masquerades (MIT, 2005), researches familiar spatial products that have landed in precarious political situations around the world. A previous book, Organization Space: Landscapes, Highways and Houses in America, applies network theory to a discussion of American infrastructure and development formats. Easterling is also the author (with the archivist, writer, and filmmaker Rick Prelinger) of Call It Home: The House That Private Enterprise Built, a laserdisc on the history of suburbia and suburban planning. In 2008 Easterling was one of 100 designers chosen by the prominent Swiss architects Herzog and de Meuron to receive a commission for a villa project organized by the Chinese artist Ai Wei Wei in Ordos, Inner Mongolia.
