Jordan Geiger is an Assistant Professor, at Situated Technologies Research Group Faculty, Center for Architecture and Situated Technologies (CAST), University at Buffalo, NY. Jordan Geiger is an architect and educator whose research and design practice address time-based and temporary constructions, and collaborative, interdisciplinary methods of practice. He directs Ga-Ga, a design studio with projects that cross architecture and interaction design, considering implications of human computer interaction for social and environmental issues. These vary in scale and type from installation and gallery design to urban design and agricultural land use proposals; they are exhibited and published internationally, and Geiger speaks on the work at conferences and symposia. In 2008, he co-organized the “Vapor” exhibition and associated “Vapor Symposium” in San Francisco. These presented architecture, design and art engaged with new technologies to address issues of air pollution and climate change. Geiger is a faculty member of the Center for Architecture and Situated Technologies (CAST) and of the Information and Computing Technologies Strategic Strength of UB2020 at the University at Buffalo. Geiger has previously taught architecture, urban design and interdisciplinary studios and seminars at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna, at UC Berkeley, and at CCA in San Francisco.
