Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects I Partners, New York City
Located in New York City, Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects I Partners, focuses on work for institutions, not-for-profit organizations and people who value issues of aspiration and meaning, timelessness and beauty. Over the past three decades, their studio has crafted a body of work that is varied in scale, type, program and location, carefully made in ways that speak to both efficiency and the spirit. A sense of light, texture, detail and most of all, experience, is at the heart of what they build. In 2017, they were selected to design the Obama Presidential Center and Library in Chicago. They have received numerous national and international citations, including the 2013 National Medal of the Arts from President Obama and the 2013 National AIA Architecture Firm Award. Both Tod and Billie are Fellows of the American Academy in Rome. In parallel with their practice, they maintain active academic careers and lecture worldwide.
As both educators and practitioners, Tod and Billie are deeply committed to making a better world through architecture.
