Sarah Dunham

Visiting Assistant Professor


Sarah is a Partner at MTWTF, where she has been shaping design processes, managing interdisciplinary design teams, and facilitating community engagement since joining the studio in 2014. Acting as project manager and art director, Sarah develops design strategies for projects that are drawn from a rigorous engagement with their content. This approach drove exhibitions including ‘Utopia—Dystopia’ a multimedia exhibition at A/D/O, ‘Seeing Equal Rights in New York State’ an interactive exhibition at the Equal Rights Heritage Center, and ‘Climates of Inequality’ an interactive exhibition of student work on environmental justice by the Humanities Action Lab. With each of these projects, Sarah worked with the design and client team to visualize the thinking behind the exhibition while managing a team of designers, researchers, and fabricators through project completion. 

Trained as an architect with professional experience at practices including OMA and WORKac, Sarah brings a unique ability to translate architectural narratives, both spatially and in print. Sarah has collaborated with clients including the Brookings Institution, the Village Alliance, SCAPE Landscape Architecture, and OMA to visualize work around issues of urban design and architecture. With signage and environmental projects, Sarah oversees concept design through fabrication and installation including work for Brooklyn Public Library, Minnewaska State Park, and Etsy.
