Mo Zell, RA, Associate Professor, Associate Dean
Mo Zell is the Associate Dean of the UWM School of Architecture and Urban Planning and principal of a design and research firm, bauenstudio. Her work is positioned at the confluence of architecture and installation. While architecture aspires towards permanence, installations are by their nature temporary and require a critical stance, one that provides possibilities to not only solve problems, but create questions and challenge preconceived notions. Zell fosters opportunities for students to work in a hands-on environment, at full-scale, and with real materials. The most recent collaborations include funded design/build studios working with Elizabeth Diller, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and Sou Fujimoto, Sou Fujimoto Architects.
