Alana Goldweit is an Associate and Senior Designer at BIG. Since 2012, she has collaborated on numerous cultural, residential and masterplanning projects. She brings an expertise in visioning, a process that involves engagement to define fundamental project values and forward-thinking designs. She has led projects such as the UC Berkeley Global Campus masterplan, a vision for the university’s campus extension; Telosa: An equitable and sustainable City in America proposed by Marc Lore; and Oceanix Sustainable Floating Cities, leading its implementation in Busan, South Korea, which was presented at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City, in 2022. For each of these projects she has managed the coordination of large client and consultant teams, as well as diverse stakeholder groups. In addition, Alana served as Project Leader on BIG’s feature exhibition at the National Building Museum in Washington DC and led the team to design and curate the large scale exhibition that received 100,000 visitors in its first two months. She spearheaded the design and publication of Hot to Cold, a 700-page book published by Taschen, which highlights 60 of BIG’s latest architecture projects. Alana received a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from Barnard College, Columbia University and a Master of Architecture from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, where her work was exhibited, published, and recognized with honors.
