Ten years of teaching organized into two broad categories: (1) Studios-&-Workshops, (2) History-Theory-&-Professional Practices 

Teaching is at the center of LABOR. Since 2012, Jessica and Federico have documented their teaching in over 60 public websites. The websites are platforms for communicating with students and an archive of the evolving pedagogy that shaped the design of a new architecture program in South Dakota. Several classes are included in B-A-R-F, an online platform connecting architectural pedagogy to issues of race, class, and gender. 


(1) Studios-&-Workshops: In-depth material investigations that are culturally expansive, framed through different media, and practiced with individual focus and collective intensity.
