Director of Studio Development

Rosa Weinberg is an artist and a registered architect. She has a BSc in Environmental Policy with Economics from the London School of Economics and an M.Arch from the Yale School of Architecture. She found her passion for fabrication at a young age and spent nights and weekends honing her skills at The Madagascar Institute in Brooklyn and Artisan's Asylum in Somerville while pursuing and practicing architecture. Since August of 2014 she has been teaching at NuVu Studio full-time. NuVu is a full-time innovation school for young minds in Cambridge, Massachusetts that applies the architectural studio model to multi-disciplinary, collaborative projects. Her main teaching interests are in guiding students past the implicit biases and cliches they bring to a problem, helping students to develop interesting and generative concepts for their projects and motivating students to dive into mechanical connections between materials, from fabric to 3D printed or laser cut parts and beyond. She has designed and taught more than 35 studios focused on social impact, disability and fashion/tech. Through her work at NuVu, her passion for constructing costumes has grown into an intense interest in architectural wearables.
