Lindsey Wikstrom

Founding Principal, Mattaforma

Architect Lindsey Wikstrom is the founding partner of Mattaforma. Her forward-thinking work weaves together ideas of care, ecosystems and the positive influence that design can have in society. Intertwined with her built work, Lindsey speaks publicly, publishes and exhibits her research. In 2023, she published her book Designing the Forest and Other Mass Timber Futures (Routledge 2023), with a foreword by Kenneth Frampton. She was also the organizer and moderator of Material Worlds, a speaker series hosted by MoMA’s Emilio Ambasz Institute that invited experts from around the world to envision the future of the most ubiquitous materials on earth. Most recently, the research was exhibited at The New York Skyscraper Museum and University of Texas at Austin. Wikstrom has taught at Columbia GSAPP, Cornell AAP, Syracuse University, and Yale School of Architecture. She holds an M.Arch from Columbia University, where she was awarded the Charles McKim Prize, Visualization Award, and Avery 6 Award. She is also the recipient of the SOM Prize.
