Marisabel Marratt is a doctoral student in the History and Theory concentration, under the direction of Professor Lars Spuybroek. Her research examines twentieth century history and philosophies of technology, and their implications for contemporary architectural history and theory, aesthetics and the evolving experience and conception of Architecture in professional practice. As point-of departure, her focus is the work of French philosopher of technology Gilbert Simondon (1924-1989), his conception of techno-aesthetics and in-formation, and its potential implications for contemporary conceptions of Architecture.

Marisabel holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Architecture from Princeton University (1985, 1988), where she developed her design thesis under the direction of Professors Anthony Vidler and Alan Colquhoun. In her extensive professional experience, Marisabel has since been involved in many award-winning projects, encompassing Architecture, Interior Architecture and Production Design. Throughout, the emphasis has been to explore the content of experience in built form. The desire to “push the envelope”, has led to inventive approaches to space/form-making, exploring and implementing virtual and material technologies, color, movement and light.

Research Interests: Philosophies of Technology and In-Formation; Science, Technology, Culture and Material Studies; Gilbert Simondon and Techno-aesthetics.
