Lisa Norton
Lisa Norton holds a B.F.A. from the Cleveland Institute of Art (1985) and an M.F.A. from Cranbrook Academy of Art (1987). A member of the faculty at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago since 1992, she teaches in the departments of Architecture, Interior Architecture and Designed Objects, and Sculpture. Norton is engaged in designing the common spaces that impact economies—the flows of people, traffic, and goods. Her current work in public design focuses on creating both traditional and alternative markets for local resources. Her collaborative projects integrate crafts, regional livelihoods, and specialties, particularly in relation to migration. Her long-term projects focus on the retrieval and re-codification of knowledge and local responses to globalization. Research interests include vernacular knowledge, craft and folk methods, innovation, industrial production, adaptive re-use, and user-centered design. She also writes about craft and culture.
