    DesignBuild Instructor
  • Douglas Hecker is the founder of fieldoffice, an internationally recognized interdisciplinary design studio whose design work ranges from toys, affordable housing products, films to highway barriers.

    Fieldoffice works from the notion that the field of design combines visionary ideas with real world problems. Fieldoffice undertakes design issues that address pressing environmental and social problems facing humanity that are often overlooked by conventional specialized design practices.

    The work of fieldoffice has been published in a diverse array of publications such as Business Week, Discover Magazine, Architectural Record, and ID magazine and has been honored by inclusion in the 10th Venice Biennale of Architecture, The 6th International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam, and the awarding of a Next Generation Award from Metropolis Magazine.
