About 

V. Mitch McEwen is principal of McEwen Studio and co-founder of A(n) Office, an architecture collaborative of studios in Detroit, Los Angeles, and Brooklyn.  McEwen's design work has been awarded grants from the Graham Foundation, Knight Foundation, and New York State Council on the Arts.  A(n) Office and McEwen Studio projects have been commissioned by the US Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale, the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, and the Istanbul Design Biennial.  In Detroit, McEwen Studio has designed a series of operations on houses previously owned by the Detroit Land Bank Authority.  These include a combined residence and flower incubator for an engineer at 3M, a strategy for 100 houses selected by the City of Detroit to densify the neighborhood of Fitzgerald, and an award-winning repurposing of a balloon-frame house titled House Opera.  Her work in urban design and architecture began at Bernard Tschumi Architects and the New York City Department of City Planning, as well as founding the Brooklyn-based non-profit SUPERFRONT.  McEwen earned her M.Arch. at Columbia and B.A. at Harvard.

Mitch's General Blog on Archinect:

Another Architecture : by Mitch McEwen

This blog started during my fellowship at Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart, Germany. Posts are sporadic. Topics span architecture, urban design, planning, and tangents from these. I sometimes include excerpts of academic articles. There is an evolving series of interviews with non-architects about subjects often discussed by architects (neighborhoods, social justice, style, sexiness, etc).
