I am an architect.
Currently I am a principal at Bureau V, a Brooklyn based design studio that I co-founded with Stella Lee and Peter Zuspan in 2007. Our recent projects include a concert hall in Williamsburg, Brooklyn (currently in construction), a DJ booth for the inventor of Techno, and an installation for an electronic music festival in upstate New York.
Prior to Bureau V, I worked at Asymptote Architecture, where I designed the competition-winning Budapest Bank Towers in Hungary, the Strata Tower in Abu Dhabi, and the Volkswagen Knowledge Gate in Wolfsberg, Germany. I also led Asymptote’s collaboration with the Office for Metropolitan Architecture for the competition-winning design for the Shenzhen Stock Exchange in Shenzhen, China. Previously I worked at Archi-Tectonics, Eisenman Architects, and LOT-EK.
I received my masters degree in architecture from Columbia, where I won the Honor Award for Excellence in Design, and before that, studied anthropology the University of California at Santa Cruz. I have taught at Columbia, the University of Pennsylvania, and the University of Kentucky, and I've been a lecturer and / or juror at many of the leading architecture schools worldwide.
My work has appeared in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Observer, and The Washington Post.
