TEMP:: DESIGN RESEARCH presents a collection of collaborative work in urban design and adjacent fields, emphasizing communication and interaction as an integral part of the design process.

LEE ALTMAN is an architect and urban designer based in New York City. Working with landscape architects, planners, scientists, artists, and visual designers, Lee has collaborated on a wide range of projects exploring the role of the designer in the built environment and developing new modes of communication and interaction. Having studied and worked in Europe, Israel and the United States, her work focuses on developing new readings of complex urban systems, and translating them into designs and policies using information visualization and architectural representation tools.

Lee coordinates and teaches an urban design studio at Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation, and occasionally draws at the Brooklyn Art Space.
