Molly Heintz is the managing editor at The Architect’s Newspaper and a co-founder of the editorial consultancy Superscript. She has led communications departments at the architecture firms Gensler and Rockwell Group and co-edited the book Spectacle by David Rockwell and Bruce Mau (Phaidon 2006). As a 2010 fellow at the Philip Johnson Glass House she helped launch the interactive site glasshouseconversations.org, and she currently serves on the communications committee for desigNYC, an organization that matches non-profits with designers.
Molly holds BAs in Classics and Art History from Duke University and an MA in the History of Art and Architecture from Harvard University, where she is (still!) an ABD PhD candidate. In the spring of 2011 she received an MFA from SVA’s Design Criticism department, with a thesis about how designers construct public identities. She likes to apply an investigative, archaeological approach to her research on the intersection of design and media, and her writing has appeared in Fast Company, AIGA Voice, and the Journal of Decorative Arts, among other publications.
