    Annabelle Selldorf: 2006 Hall of Fame Inductee

    text


    Annabelle Selldorf, FAIA, is the Principal of Selldorf Architects, a 65-person firm in New York City that she founded in 1988. The firm's work includes public and private projects that range from museums and libraries to a recycling facility, and at scales encompassing the construction of new buildings, restoration of historic interiors, and exhibition design.


    Creating buildings that are both contemporary and timeless is a fundamental goal of the firm. The practice designs buildings and public spaces that are an integrated and authentic reflection of the cities and institutions they serve. Projects evolve in response to their specific context and program, drawing influence from local materials and building traditions. This context-driven approach is guided by rigor, precision, and restraint. 


    The firm’s clients include cultural institutions and universities such as the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Neue Galerie New York, the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, and Brown University. In addition, the firm has created numerous galleries for David Zwirner, Hauser & Wirth, and Gladstone Gallery among others, and designed exhibitions for Frieze Masters and the 2013 Venice Art Biennial.


    Selldorf Architects recently completed a 30,000 sf LEED Gold gallery building for David Zwirner and finished work on the Sunset Park Material Recovery Facility, a new recycling facility and education center on the Brooklyn waterfront. The firm’s renovation of the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute’s Museum Building opened to the public in July of 2014, followed by the opening of the Manton Research Center Renovation in early 2015. Selldorf Architects is currently designing an expansion for the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego; converting a former rail depot into LUMA Arles, a new contemporary art center in Arles France; and renovating Brown University’s library for special collections.


    Ms. Selldorf is a recipient of the 2014 Architecture Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. The award recognizes American architects whose work is characterized by a strong personal direction.


    Ms. Selldorf is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, an Academician of the National Academy Museum, and serves on the Board of the Architectural League of New York and the Chinati Foundation. Born and raised in Germany, she received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Pratt Institute and a Master of Architecture degree from Syracuse University in Florence, Italy.
