Karen A. Franck, PhD, is a professor in the College of Architecture and Design at the New Jersey Institute of Technology in Newark where she also serves as Director of the Joint PhD Program in Urban Systems. Many of her research interests and publications focus on various aspects of the design process (including Architecture from the Inside Out and Design Through Dialogue) or urban public space (including Loose Space). Her 2015 book, Memorials as Spaces of Engagement: Design, Use and Meaning, written with Quentin Stevens, brings those two interests together. An upcoming publication in 2016 will be her guest-edited issue of AD (Architectural Design) entitled Architecture Timed: Designing with Time in Mind that features articles by Jill Stoner and Federica Goffi of the Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism.
