James Biber’s Profile
James Biber has practiced architecture in a multidisciplinary environment for more than 25 years. First studying to be a biologist, then as an architect, he has surrounded himself with a variety of thinkers from different fields to expand the notion of architecture. His work centers on a belief that architecture, as an expression of identity, is inseparable from its language of form and tectonics. The result is an architecture tied closely to its context, whether physical, cultural, or metaphorical.
Biber Architects has created projects ranging from oceanfront private residences in the Hamptons (NY) to a museum for the iconic Harley-Davidson motorcycle company. Filling in this broad spectrum of projects are restaurants, showrooms, retail stores, schools, exhibitions, streetscapes, and urban design projects spanning the U. S. market. Current clients include the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT; the Fashion Center, New York City; and the James Beard Foundation.
James Biber lives in New York with his wife, Carin Goldberg, a graphic designer, and more books than he knows what to do with.
