Jaffer Kolb co-directs the New York-based design practice New Affiliates, an award-winning practice whose work has been published internationally and includes a range of scales from exhibition design to ground up buildings and mid-size reuse projects. Recently he guest-edited a special section of Log 41 called "Working Queer," and writes on the intersection of architectural form with the politics of objects, on design methodologies, and sometimes on nature. Additionally, he co-directs the Brooklyn-based gallery 1.5 Rooms, which presents exhibitions linking domesticity and art practice as both spatial and visual phenomena. He was the 2015 Muschenheim teaching fellow at the University of Michigan Ann Arbor, and has since taught at Princeton University and the Pratt Institute. He received his Master of Architecture from Princeton University's School of Architecture, his Master of Urban Planning from the London School of Economics, and his Bachelor of Arts from Wesleyan University.
