Academic Specialist & Co-Director, Summer Design Studio
Rebecca Whidden practices and teaches design in the greater Boston area. A driving interest in process – how disparate information is sorted and integrated into a synthetic whole, and how conceptual ideas become built reality – informs her professional and academic work.
Currently a designer and project manager at Jones Architecture in Salem, MA, Becca’s recent projects include design and planning studies for academic clients in Vermont, New Hampshire and Boston, and residential commissions in Marblehead and Melrose. Prior to her work with Jones Architecture, Becca worked at Perry Dean Rogers | Partners Architects in Boston and Fernau & Hartman Architects in Berkeley, CA.
Becca received an M.Arch from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design and a B.A. with honors in history from the University of Chicago. She has taught design studios at Northeastern since 2010, and served as a guest critic at RISD, MIT, the BAC and Pratt.
