Bryony Roberts Studio is an award-winning design and research practice based in New York, led by designer and scholar Bryony Roberts. The studio approaches design as a social practice — creating immersive environments and community-based collaborations that prompt alternative forms of inhabitation. Creating transformative design projects at international sites such as the Piazza del Campidoglio in Rome, the Dubai Design District in Dubai, the Federal Plaza in Chicago, and the Neutra VDL House in Los Angeles, the practice works with local creators and community groups to respond to complex cultural histories and urban conditions. Bryony Roberts Studio has received support from the Graham Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the American Academy in Rome, and has exhibited with the Chicago Architecture Biennial of 2015 and Performa 17, as well as in venues in Rome, New York, Houston, Boston and Los Angeles.
Roberts earned her B.A. from Yale University and her M.Arch from the Princeton School of Architecture, and teaches at Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation in New York. She has been awarded the 2018 Architectural League Prize, the 2018 Miller Prize, the MacDowell Colony Fellowship in Architecture for Summer 2018, and the Rome Prize from the American Academy in Rome for 2015-2016. She has published her research in the Harvard Design Magazine, Log, Future Anterior, and Architectural Record, co-edited the volume Log 31: New Ancients, and recently edited a book titled Tabula Plena: Forms of Urban Preservation published by Lars Müller Publishers. She will be the guest editor of the forthcoming publication Log 48: Expanding Modes of Practice.
