May 27, 2009 - 5:30pm

Nick Gelpi was born in 1979 in New Orleans, and holds a professional degree in architecture from Tulane University. In 2003 he graduated from Columbia University in New York with a Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design. He has worked in the New York offices of nArchitects, G-tects, and most recently Steven Holl Architects from 2004-2008. Nick's work focuses mainly on materials, their relationship to scalar specificity and the noise produced at their intersection. He is concerned with scale's relationship to architecture as a way of testing and engaging the world. In 2007 Nick received ARCHITECT Magazine's first annual R&D award, he is the 2008/2009 recipient of the Howard E. LeFevre Emerging Practitioner Fellow at The Ohio State, and has previously taught graduate design studios at Columbia University from 2007 to 2008.
