David Tajchman, Visiting Professor
Introduction by Associate Professor Jeremy Edmiston
Founded in 2009, Architectures David Tajchman is a multidisciplinary design studio based in Paris, whose practice spans the fields of architecture, design, installation art, performance art, video art, writing and education. We have been designing at all scales for a variety of clients, programmes and cities. We seek out visionary clients whose projects demand new and innovative solutions. Graduated as an architect in Brussels, the city of Art Nouveau, and post-graduated from the Bartlett School in London, David Tajchman envisions projects with the Gesamtkunstwerk spirit he experienced in Victor Horta’s buildings during his childhood in Brussels. Our studio pursues this collaborative work tradition with artists and manufacturers, to design sur-measure solutions. The work of the studio has become, over the last ten years, an influential force in the culture of contemporary architecture. Since 2016, the studio has self-initiated its research by design projects: "Gran Mediterraneo" - a Tel Aviv-specific mixed use high-rise, "Hanging Automotive Gardens" - an automated parking silo and public garden for Paris, and the "Topological House On The Rocks." Today, we continue to develop through new projects our repertoire of design possibilities.
All lectures are free, open to the public, and held at 6:30 pm in the Bernard and Anne Spitzer School of Architecture Sciame Auditorium. Continuing Education Credit for registered New York architects is available.
