Mason White is a partner at Lateral Office and an Associate Professor at the Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design at University of Toronto. He is a co-author of two recent books Many Norths: Spatial Practice in a Polar Territory (Actar, 2017) and Third Coast Atlas: Prelude to a Plan (Actar, 2017). White worked at Moncaelli Press (New York), Machado Silvetti Associates (Boston), and Panter Hudspith (London) before forming LATERAL OFFICE, and has taught at Harvard University, Cornell University, Ohio State University, and UC Berkeley. He is convinced that there are new roles for architecture out there that we do not know because we are not looking, really looking. Lateral Office is the recipient of numerous international awards, including a 2016 National Urban Design Award from the RAIC, special recognition representing Canada at the 2014 Venice Biennale in Architecture, a 2013 Progressive Architecture Award, and a 2009 Pamphlet Architecture from Princeton Architectural Press.
