Offices of LTL Architects
227 West 29th Street, 7th Floor (between 7th and 8th Ave.)
Join LTL Architects at their office for drinks, conversation, and a behind the scenes look at their ongoing work including a detailed look at Arthouse—a recently opened contemporary art space in Austin, Texas. This is the first night of the new Architectural League series, First Friday, a monthly opportunity for League members to visit the offices of leading design practices to see work on the boards and learn more about the offices’ organization and design processes. These informal social gatherings will feature brief office tours and presentations along with happy hour drinks arranged by the host office.
Founded in 1997 by Paul Lewis, Marc Tsurumaki, and David J. Lewis, Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis (LTL Architects) is an architecture partnership that explores opportunistic overlaps between form, program, and materiality. The firm’s work is part of several museum collections and has been exhibited widely at venues including the Museum of Modern Art as part of the Rising Currents exhibition, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Walker Art Center, Carnegie Museum of Art, and the U.S. Pavilion at the 2004 Venice Architecture Biennale. Lewis.Tsurumaki.Lewis are the authors of Opportunistic Architecture (2008) and Situation Normal….Pamphlet Architecture #21 (1998). LTL received the 2007 Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award for Interior Design. Current work includes Arthouse, a student center at the University of Wyoming, and a new administrative campus for the Claremont University Consortium in Claremont, California.
This program is free and open to League members. Members may bring one guest whom they would like to introduce to League programs. RSVP requested to email@example.com.
