Julieanna Preston

Julieanna Preston is an Associate Professor at the Institute of Design for Industry and Environment at  Massey University, Wellington, teaching primarily in Interior Architecture. With a BArch from Virginia Tech (USA), a MArch from Cranbrook Academy of Art (USA) and a PhD from RMIT University, Julieanna’s experience as a professional designer and an academic extends across geographical and discipline boundaries, a factor that continues to figure strongly in her creative work. Recent publications include INTIMUS: Interior Design Theory Reader (Wiley, 2006) and Moments of Resistance (Archadia Press, 2002), both in collaboration with Mark Taylor. Earlier this year she was the guest editor of AD: Interior Atmospheres, an issue investigating the temporal and material attributes of atmosphere within interior environments. Her history as a spatial artist is evidenced by numerous group and solo exhibitions: SHEET, Ames Iowa (1994) sponsored by a Graham Foundation for the Advancement of the Arts, her finalist entry to the Antemillineum Doll House Competition at the Atlanta Art Museum (1994), Pinned Structure and Folded Surface: Sewing Operations on the Eiffel Tower at RISD Architecture School (2002) and gallery52, Wellington, NZ (2003) and BLAZE in an exhibition called Feminist Practices currently touring numerous university schools of art, architecture and design in the United States. Julieanna is currently melding her background in feminist practices, craft and construction, interiors and landscape in a doctoral study at RMIT, Melbourne, Australia.
