Troy Schaum is an Associate Professor at the Rice School of Architecture and a partner in SCHAUM/SHIEH. His practice, a collaboration with architect Rosalyne Shieh, has a particular interest in the city at the scale of the building, both as a site of theoretical experimentation and as a reality that may be transformed through building. This work unfolds at a range of scales, with completed projects in Detroit, New York, Houston, and Virginia. Recent and ongoing work includes a masterplan for the Judd Foundation and a restoration of the Chamberlain Building for the Chinati Foundation, both in Marfa, Texas, the headquarters for an arts institution in Houston, and proposals for a residential tower on Park Avenue in New York City. SCHAUM/SHIEH was a finalist in the 2017 MoMA PS1 Young Architects Program, named one of the 2016 New Practices New York by the AIA and selected as one of the 2019 Architectural League Emerging Voices. His work has been exhibited at the Venice Biennale, MoMA, Art Prize in Grand Rapids, the Storefront For Art and Architecture, Harvard GSD, and the Center For Architecture in New York and published in many journals including: Architect’s Newspaper, Texas Architect, Dezeen, Domus, Architect and Architectural Record. His book, Totalization: Speculative Practice in Architectural Education, was released this month by Park Books.
This event is open to current Cooper Union students, faculty, and staff. Room 315F.
