Fritz Haeg

Fritz Haeg works between his occasional architecture and design practice, the ecology initiatives of Gardenlab (including Edible Estates and Animal Estates), the happenings and gatherings of Sundown Salon (now Sundown Schoolhouse), and various combinations of building, curating, dancing, designing, exhibiting, gardening, organizing, talking, teaching, and writing. His home base since 2001 is a geodesic dome in the hills of Los Angeles. Haeg studied architecture in Italy at the Istituto Universitario di Architettura di Venezia and Carnegie Mellon University. He has variously taught in architecture, design, and fine art programs at Cal Arts, Art Center College of Design, Parsons School of Design, and the University of Southern California. Haeg has produced projects and exhibited work at Tate Modern; the Whitney Museum of American Art; San Francisco MoMA; Casco, Utrecht; Mass MoCA; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia; the Netherlands Architecture Institute, Maastricht; The Indianapolis Museum of Art, among others. The Sundown Salon Unfolding Archive (Evil Twin Publications) was released in 2009, and the expanded second edition of Edible Estates: Attack on the Front Lawn (Metropolis Books) in 2010.
