Surry Schlabs

Surry Schlabs is an architectural designer and researcher, whose work brings the pragmatist aesthetics and pedagogical theories of John Dewey to bear on the interpretation of mid-century modernist art and architectural practices, rooting out otherwise illegible strands of collaboration, integration, and common interest among painters, architects, and educators of the era.  He holds both BA and MArch degrees from Yale, and is currently finishing work on his doctoral dissertation, "Slouching Towards Architecture: John Dewey and the Limits of Modern Art."  Before returning to Yale for his PhD, he worked as project manager for the Yale Urban Design Workshop and Gray Organschi Architecture, in New Haven.
