Los Angeles, CA, US



At the nexus of architecture, museums and travel, Jodie Bass works as a multi-disciplinary writer, designer, teacher, and critic.  In both study and application, she aims to utilize sustainable materials and design methods and strives to give focus to socially conscious projects and practices.  Her work can be traced in publications which include BOMB, Dwell, Architizer, and Invade, through which she interrogates new forms of design and design thinking, theoretically and in the built environment.  She continually seeks new opportunities to explore design, at home and abroad.  She is currently based in Los Angeles.
