Zoë Toledo

Architectural Designer

Zoë Toledo is a Diné Asdzáán, a member of the Navajo Nation, and believes that narratives represented in the built environment need to express kinship and honor the lived experience of community members.

As both a designer and researcher, Zoë engages in a practice of narrative change, utilizing archives, story-telling, and memory to center land and Indigenous frameworks within architecture and design. Her research has been published in The Avery Review and awarded the Grace May Tilton Prize in Fine Arts. In addition, she teaches design studios at Arizona State University and co-founded the Harvard Indigenous Design Collective.

Zoë graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts (A.B) in Architecture from Princeton University and holds a Master of Architecture from Harvard Graduate School of Design.
