Winter Nights New York: G TECTS LCC / Gordon Kipping Architects

30 January 2008

  • Issey Miyake, Madison Avenue

A Canadian native living and working in New York, Gordon Kipping brings his original training in engineering to his architecture, giving him an in-depth knowledge into the actual mechanics of building design. While still working for other, larger practices he produced conceptual and built work under his current company name. Working independently gave him the freedom to investigate his interest in the influence electronic information technologies have on architecture and led him to author a book on the subject.

Currently Kipping is working on another publication entitled Home Entertainment - Home Broadcast whilst acting as Adjunct Assistant Professor at the School of Architecture at Columbia University, where he teaches an advanced design studio, and regularly assisting Frank Gehry in teaching a design studio at the School of Architecture at Yale University. Since 1999 Kipping has been dedicated to G TECTS LLC / Gordon Kipping Architects, designing spaces for a variety of clients from the Issey Miyake Madison Avenue flagship store to the Stockholm City Library.

Chaired by Tom Emerson, 6a Architects.
