Join 1100 Architect at its office for drinks, conversation, and a behind the scenes look at their ongoing work. The League’s First Fridays are monthly opportunities 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 feature brief office tours and presentations along with happy hour drinks arranged by the host office.

Operating from offices in New York and Frankfurt, 1100 Architect works in architecture design, programming, space analysis, interior design, and master planning. The firm was founded by David Piscuskas and Juergen Riehm with the understanding that building design is a “progressive process informed by client aspirations, site, history, available resources, and time.”

For 1100 Architect, successful design is inextricable from a responsibility to environmental sustainability. Attention to environment and patterns of use inform projects such as the New York Public Library in Battery Park City; the Queens Central Library Children’s Discovery Center; and the renovation of the Riverside Health Center on the Upper West Side. The Children’s Discovery Center has received awards from the Municipal Art Society of New York, the Queens Chamber of Commerce, the Public Design Commission of the City of New York, and the American Library Association/International Interior Design Association. In 2001, the firm received an AIA New York Chapter Design Award.
