Born in Alabama, Jennifer Bonner founded MALL a creative practice for art and architecture in 2009. MALL stands for Mass Architectural Loopty Loops or Maximum Arches with Limited Liability—an acronym with built-in flexibility. By engaging “ordinary architecture” such as gable roofs and everyday materials, Bonner playfully reimagines architecture in her field. Her work has received an AR Award for Emerging Architecture (Architectural Review), an Emerging Voices Award (AIA/ Young Architects Forum) and has been published in Architect Magazine, a+t, DAMn, PLAT, Offramp, and MAS Context. She is the founder of A Guide to the Dirty South, editor of Platform: Still Life, and guest editor of the ART PAPERS special issue on architecture and design of Los Angeles.
Jennifer Bonner is currently Assistant Professor of Architecture and Director of the Master in Architecture II Program at Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
