My Bio Kyna Leski is a founding principal of 3SIXØ Architecture (www.3six0.com) and a Professor of Architecture at the Rhode Island School of Design.

Her design for a house of visual shadows, which she calls, “Dream House” was awarded first place out of 480 entries in the Shinkenchiku Residential Design Competition in 1998. Architect Shin Takamatsu, the author of the theme of that year’s competition, “A House as a Poetic Space,” and judge of the competition, stated, “. . . the project by Kyna Leski was outstanding. Light undergoes variations and dislocations and becomes architecture. It is an architecture, which resembles the topography of light. The process undergoes both interruptions and leaps forward. Each moment it becomes more complex, and attains a new depth of beauty. The architecture is woven into it. It is true poetry."

Leski's book, "The Storm of Creativity," is being published by MIT Press in October 2015.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
the creative process. It is called, Storm's-eye View: Tracing the Creative Arc.
