The Department of Architecture has hired Luben Dimcheff (B.Arch. '99) as the Richard Meier Assistant Professor of Architecture, effective July 1. Dimcheff has been a visiting critic at AAP since 2012, and has taught the Introduction to Architecture Summer Program since the same year.

Dimcheff leads a design and architecture practice based in New York City with projects built internationally. Prior to establishing his own practice, he was a senior associate at Smith-Miller + Hawkinson Architects, where projects included the SMH house at the Houses at Sagaponac development, and the Hospital for Special Surgery building on Manhattan's waterfront, which received awards from Mayor Bloomberg and the New York City Design Commission.

Dimcheff has taught at the Parsons School of Constructed Environments in both the graduate and undergraduate programs. Prior to receiving his B.Arch. from AAP, he had graduated with honors from the Art Institute of Seattle, where he studied fashion and interior design.

Named in honor of Richard Meier (B.Arch. '56), whose commitment to design excellence is a hallmark of Cornell’s highly ranked architecture program, the Meier Professorship is a tenure-track appointment in architectural design.
