Sarah Whiting is the William Ward Watkin Professor and Dean of the Rice School of Architecture. As a teacher, writer, and designer, her work revolves around architecture’s catalytic relationship to politics, economics, and society, focusing especially on the modern subject (individual as well as collective) and the way that this subject affects and is affected by architecture and the city.

In addition to writing and teaching, she is a partner, along with Ron Witte, of WW Architecture, based in Houston, Texas.
