Founder and Principal at Ibañez Kim Studio
Associate Professor at Harvard University Graduate School of Design
Mariana Ibañez is an architect in Argentina, and Associate Professor at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design, where she is part of the Responsive Environments and Artifacts Lab, and is on the awards jury of the Boston Society of Architects and the MacDowell Colony.
Mariana received her M.Arch from the Architectural Association in London, before joining the offices of Arup Advanced Geometry Unit and Zaha Hadid Architects. In 2012 she co-founded Ibañez Kim, a design practice based in Cambridge and Philadelphia that engages the fields of material performance, spatial interaction, and robotics within architecture and urbanism. At Ibañez Kim, Mariana continues her thesis interests in adaptable urban organizations and tectonics as the synthesis between architecture, computation, and emergent technologies for design and fabrication.
As an academic and editor, Mariana’s research is in the disciplinary core of architecture and its growing periphery. Her recent publication by Actar D, Paradigms in Computing, is an inquiry into design agency and revitalizing its scope of work. Her theater work continues with the collaboration with Grace Kelly Jazz, The Dufala Brothers, and Opera Philadelphia, as well as exhibiting in the MoMA, Milan Fashion Week, and National Art Museum in Beijing.
Founding Principal at Utile Architecture & Planning Design
Associate Professor at Northeastern University School of Architecture
Tim Love is the founding principal of Utile, a 50-person Boston-based architecture and planning firm. Love’s primary focus is the relationship between individual works of architecture and the larger city. His work is not driven by aesthetics, but by collaborative deep-dive research focused on the technical, cultural, regulatory, and environmental issues of urban design problems. Love and his teams find opportunities for design by uncovering latent issues and fully leveraging and synthesizing them.
Love works on diverse projects of varying scales, including regeneration strategies for aging industrial areas and master plans for new urban districts. Love and his collaborators are also known for their award-winning public realm initiatives, including the Boston Complete Streets Guidelines and the Boston Harbor Islands Pavilion on the Rose Kennedy Greenway. Currently, Love is working on the citywide plans for both Boston and Cambridge and a comprehensive master plan for Boston City Hall and Plaza.
Love is a tenured Associate Professor at the Northeastern University School of Architecture where he teaches urban design theory and graduate-level research studios.
