Eisenman Architects’ unique approach to design projects is to consider the layers of physical and cultural archaeologies at each site, not just the obvious contexts and programs of a building. Rather than pursuing a particular building type, NoMad New York-based Eisenman Architects specializes in a particular problem type: projects with difficult siting, programmatic and/ or budgetary constraints, and of strategic importance to their environment.
The firm has produced a wide range of award-winning projects around the world, including housing, urban planning, and innovative education, cultural and commercial facilities. The office’s current projects include a one-million-square-foot, six-building cultural complex in Santiago de Compostela, Spain (a library and an archive, a performing arts center, two museums, and a central services building) a commuter rail station in Pompeii, Italy, condominium housing in Milan, and a master plan for Pozzouli, Italy. Many of the firm’s projects have received design awards including the Wexner Center for the Arts and Fine Arts at The Ohio State University, the Koizumi Sangyo Corporation headquarters in Tokyo, and the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin.
