As Partner at A(n) Office and Principal of McEwen Studio, V. Mitch McEwen works in architectural and urban design, focused particularly on the intersection of urban culture and global forces.  Led by McEwen with design partners in New York and Los Angeles, A(n) Office is currently one of 12 U.S. firms exhibited at the U.S. pavilion for the 2016 Venice Architecture Biennale.  

This past summer, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit presented Methexis, a solo exhibition focused on McEwen Studio’s work in Detroit, presented as a series of 3d-printed alterations to balloon-frame structures.  Before founding McEwen Studio, McEwen worked as an urban designer in the office of Bernard Tschumi Architects and New York City’s Department of City Planning. Her work has been published in Architectural Record magazine, ArtNews, and the New York Times and will be exhibited at the upcoming Istanbul Design Biennial.
