Jason Rebillot is an instructor in landscape architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and the principal of Work Group No. 58. His research centers on the spatial, material, and organizational effects that contemporary processes of state restructuring have on metropolitan form and function. Currently being written at Harvard, his doctoral dissertation catalogs a set of corresponding urban practices that have emerged in the wake of this scenario, most notably among the polycentric urban networks of Western Europe. From 2005-2010, Rebillot was a full-time faculty member at the University of Colorado Denver, offering numerous design studios and theory seminars on architecture, landscape and urban design, and directing international programs in Rome and Shanghai. During his appointment there, he received an award for excellence in teaching from the university and was named ‘Instructor of the Year’ by the state chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
Rebillot has published writings in outlets such as MONU (Magazine on Urbanism) and Landscape Journal and has delivered a series of public presentations on the topic of contemporary urbanism. He has been an invited design critic at several schools including Woodbury University, Harvard University, UCLA, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Tongji University (Shanghai) and Southeast University (Nanjing). Rebillot holds degrees in architecture from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and the University of Illinois at Chicago, where he was awarded the ARCC Student Medal for Excellence in Architectural and Environmental Design Research.
