Mina Chow, AIA NCARB is an interdisciplinary licensed architect, filmmaker and Adjunct Assoc. Professor at the USC School of Architecture, currently teaching building science studio and professional practice. She is founding principal of design/multi-media firm mc² SPACES which expands architectural appreciation to new audiences; strengthens professional collaboration; and connects the public’s interest to design of the built environment. She hopes to highlight the humanity, passion and sacrifice of this process with stories that reveal its creation and destruction. Her films and interdisciplinary work communicate important underlying relationships between design and culture-- showing that it permeates throughout history, and that it belongs to everyone. She recently completed “FACE OF A NATION: What Happened to the World’s Fair?” a documentary connecting how America abandoned the World’s Fair to the erosion of the country’s international image and the representation of the American people. It is receiving national attention in news and festivals.
