Bryan Young: Figure-Cast-Frame
Bryan Young received his Master of Architecture with distinction from Harvard University in 2003, where he was awarded the AIA Henry Adams Medal and the Thesis Prize for his spatial diagrams on Donkey Kong and Pac-Man. He received his Bachelor of Arts with highest honors from UC Berkeley in 1997. Since 2009 he has taught design studios and seminars at universities including MIT School of Architecture + Planning, Columbia GSAPP, Parsons School of Design, Syracuse University School of Architecture, and The Cooper Union. Prior to establishing his studio, Young was a senior associate at Allied Works Architecture and previously worked for ARO, SOM, and Peter Pfau.
Founded in 2010, Young Projects studio explores a variety of methods: breaking traditional techniques for fabrication, hand pulling plaster, growing crystals, and burning things, to name a few; geometry, pattern, texture, and spatial complexity play a significant role in creating an ambiguous architecture. Copies of Young Projects' first monograph will be available for purchase at the event.
