HARVARD PROJECT ON THE CITY

I received my M.Arch from Harvard University, working under acclaimed architect Rem Koolhaas, and was project leader of his influential ‘Harvard Project on the City’ in its first year (1996). My thesis project, “To Get Rich is Glorious,” about the transformation of China from a local to a global economy, then back again, was published by Taschen in ‘Great Leap Forward’ and was included in an installation at the international art fair ‘documenta X’, which I helped Koolhaas (and others) design and produce. According to one critic, “Stephanie Smith’s diary of encountering the people and customs of the new, development crazed Dongguan City in southern China, offers the compelling and evocative observation of a first-class novel.
