Bryony Roberts Studio is an award-winning design and research practice based in New York. Integrating methods from architecture, art, and preservation, the practice creates transformative design projects in response to complex cultural histories and urban conditions. With projects at international sites such as the Piazza del Campidoglio in Rome, the Federal Plaza in Chicago, Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem, NY, and the Neutra VDL House in Los Angeles, the practice operates across a range of scales from installations to architectural interventions to urban design. Working in relation to both architectural and social conditions, the projects grow from extensive historical research and close collaborations with local creators and stakeholders. Bryony Roberts Studio has been supported by 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.
