Please join us at Axor NYC for a presentation and conversation with Christian Wassman, one of the NPNY 2012 winners!


Christian Wassmann founded his private practice in 2006 in NYC and is the recipient of the 2012 AIA New York New Practices award and the 2010 Swiss Art Award. His architectural designs stem from discoveries originating in the interconnections between the arts and materials. He and his international team develop designs influenced by the vibrancy of urban life, art, and geometry. Wassmann’s projects range from ephemeral site-specific installations and exhibitions to more enduring furniture, interiors, and architecture. Starting his career at a young age in Switzerland, Wassmann has gone on to collaborate with architects and artists for the past two decades.

Wassmann has designed projects such as the celebrated East Village Radio station on 1st Avenue, the Curved Wall House in Miami, the “Fibonacci Spiral” construction for the threeASFOUR fashion show, an apartment and private showroom for Lisson Gallery, and the 29º Observatory for the Independent Art Fair.

Wassmann studied at University of Art and Design, Zurich and at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna.
