Gabriela Goldschmidt is a graduate of the School of Architecture at Yale University. She worked as a practicing architect in the USA and Israel and had her own practice in Haifa until the mid-1980s, at which time she joined the Architecture and Town Planning Faculty at the Technion in a full-time capacity. She is a co-founder of the Faculty’s graduate program in industrial design. Since the end of 2010 she is a professor emeritus. Gabriela taught a large number of design studios and theoretical seminars that reflect her main research interests: design cognition and reasoning, visual thinking and sketching, analogy, and design education. She served as a visiting professor or visiting scholar at MIT, Stanford, TUDelft, the University of Montreal, UNIST (S. Korea), and Bezalel Academy of Art and Design. Her publications include dozens of refereed journal papers, book chapters, papers in conference proceedings, and two books: an edited volume (with Prof. William Porter of MIT), Design representation (Springer 2004), and Linkography: Unfolding the design process (MIT Press 2014). She continues to lecture around the world and supervise PhD students at the Technion.
