Led by partners Laura Bouwman and Andrew Zago, Bouwman Zago brings open-ended, creative inquiry to disciplinary concerns in architecture. Noted for its prescient articulation of emerging sensibilities, the practice weds quasi-autonomous aesthetic studies to the art of making buildings and cities. In doing so, Bouwman Zago reaffirms the substantial and productive link amongst art, architecture and urbanism. The firm has completed projects in the US, Mexico, and Korea including the Fine Venture office tower in Seoul, the Cornell Synthesis Studio for Cornell University’s Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD). In 2011 Zago Architecture was selected by the Museum of Modern Art in New York for its Foreclosed: Rehousing the American Dream exhibition. In 2015 Andrew Zago and Laura Bouwman were selected to represent the United States at the US Pavilion for the 15th Venice Architecture Biennale. In 2018, the firm was selected to design a housing prototype for a rural house for Nanacamilpa, Mexico. This prototype was built this year as part of a housing exposition in Apan, Mexico. In 2021, Laura Bouwman and Andrew Zago were named Visiting Baumer Professors at the Knowlton School of Architecture at The Ohio State University. Their work will be the subject of an upcoming book published by the school. In 2021, Laura Bouwman and Andrew Zago founded STUDIO TECNICO.
