Ronit Eisenbach has been promoted to full professor by the University of Maryland’s Architecture Program. An accomplished architect, artist and educator, Eisenbach teaches both graduate and undergraduate architecture studios, contemporary theory and an introductory course on the built environment. She has led several multidisciplinary, community-driven projects that explore the perception of place, often pairing design with other humanities-based disciplines such as dance and sculpture, and has worked with students to develop several place-based public art installations throughout the region. She was one of the first professors to have a course selected by UMD’s Academy for Innovation & Entrepreneurship as a “Fearless Ideas Course.” Eisenbach also manages and curates the School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation’s Kibel and Linear Galleries. Most recently, she curated MAPP@50: Concrete Pasts, Possible Futures, an exhibition celebrating the school’s history while envisioning its future through the collective voice of its community.
Professionally, Eisenbach has showcased work all over the world, including the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Cranbrook Art Museum and in Tel Aviv. Her work has garnered numerous awards and she has co-authored both a book and a documentary film. She is a graduate of the Cranbrook Academy of Art and the Rhode Island School of Design.
