The Broad MSU announces Associate Curator of Architecture and Design

EAST LANSING, MI.- The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University announced the appointment of Alec Hathaway as Associate Curator of Architecture and Design.

Hathaway is an accomplished architect, having worked on a diverse portfolio of projects in both New York and California. Most recently, Hathaway was a project manager with the award winning EHDD Architecture in San Francisco, where his work ranged from student housing and laboratories for multiple University of California campuses to renovation projects at the San Francisco Zoo and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. At EHDD Hathaway was a leader of the Strategic Planning Group for Sustainability and the office’s efforts to reduce environmental impacts. Outside of his architectural design projects Hathaway has focused on engendering a broader appreciation and understanding of architecture through his teaching, publication and digital interpretation projects, most recently focusing on the role of museum architecture in the 20th and 21st centuries. His experience with both contemporary thought and practice in architecture makes Hathaway an invaluable addition to the Broad MSU.

“At the Broad MSU we are surrounded everyday by the architectural genius of Zaha Hadid. Having Alec join our curatorial team will allow us to explore and imagine anew the profound effects architecture has on people around the world,” said Michael Rush, Founding Director of the Broad MSU. “We seek to become a vibrant lab for architectural and design explorations.”

Hathaway has been working closely with the Broad MSU since 2012 as a consultant and guest curator. His upcoming 2014 exhibition East Lansing 2030: Collegeville Re-Envisioned focuses on speculative designs that could have an impact on the museum’s surrounding East Lansing community. The exhibition is preceded by a series of public conversations with the participating architects, landscape architects, and urban designers around themes in their work relevant to East Lansing. Hathaway looks for the series and exhibition to create a vibrant dialog about architecture and the future of the college town, saying: “I couldn’t be more excited about the potential for the museum’s programming, like the museum building itself, to impact and inspire our local and global communities through design.”

Hathaway received his Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Virginia in 1995, and went on to achieve his Master of Architecture from the Yale School of Architecture in 2001.
