PAUL PREISSNER ARCHITECTS LTD is a Chicago-based architectural office committed to advancing the field of architecture and design through exploring new ways to bring shape to projects, and innovative organizations to program. We search for projects and clients that share our ambitions and obsessions concerning the formalized world regardless of scale, location or typology. The office was awarded the Second Prize in the 2006 International Competition to design the Museum of Pre-History in South Korea, and work from this project is part of the permanent collection of the Art Institute of Chicago.
As a full service architectural office PAUL PREISSNER ARCHITECTS LTD provides planning services, building design, interior design, and landscape design. We work with you from the beginning to develop a project scope, including budget, timeline, project ambitions, architectural intentions, and an evolved project program. PAUL PREISSNER ARCHITECTS LTD works with some of the best consultants available in order to provide successful and meaningful projects.
The work of PAUL PREISSNER ARCHITECTS LTD has been recently exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Total Museum of Art in Korea. Work from the office is part of 1000 x Architecture of the Americas (Publisher: Verlagshaus Braun) and Digital Architecture Now (Publisher: Thames and Hudson) along with numerous other books and periodicals on contemporary architecture.
PAUL PREISSNER ARCHITECTS LTD approaches each project as a collaboration with discriminating clients, consultants and talented builders. Each project is choreographed with contemporary architectural effects to develop uniquely present architecture. As a practice we continually develop new architectural thoughts, which allow each project to define its own context, pushing the work further than conventionally thought possible.
