Architect / United States / Studio Christian Wassmann

Christian Wassmann’s architectural designs present discoveries originating from the interconnections of the arts. His Studio’s work demonstrates that design and architecture must not necessarily abide by the modernist ideology that “form follows function,” but rather present how “form performs function.”

Wassmann and his international team develop designs influenced by the vibrancy of urban life, art, and geometry. The projects of the Studio range from ephemeral site-specific installations and exhibitions to more enduring furniture, interiors, and buildings. The Studio has designed projects such as the celebrated East Village Radio station, the Curved Wall House in Miami, the “Fibonacci Spiral” construction for the threeASFOUR fashion show, and an apartment and private showroom for Lisson Gallery in New York City. The Studio recently completed the architectural installation and rooftop pavilion for the Independent art fair in New York and is currently designing several art gallery projects.

After starting his career at a young age in Switzerland, Christian Wassmann has continued to collaborate with architects and artists throughout the past two decades. Wassmann established his private practice in 2005 and became incorporated in 2008. Studio Christian Wassmann is the recipient of the 2012 AIA New York New Practice award and the 2010 Swiss Art Award.
