Biography

Thom Faulders has lectured at universities and professional venues internationally, and is licensed to practice architecture in California. He has taught at UC Berkeley and KTH in Stockholm, and is currently Professor of Architecture at CCA/California College of the Arts in San Francisco.

His FAULDERS STUDIO works at the intersection of commissioned architecture, speculative design research, permanent public art installations, and international museum and gallery exhibitions. The multi-disciplinary practice believes that the design of today’s built environment can be positioned as an open condition: a responsive medium formed in direct exchange with active contextual phenomena and dynamic perceptual tactics. With a focus on new production methodologies and innovative material applications, the projects embed architecture with spatial variability that sync stability with change, and are informed through and defined by investigations into emergent behaviors of complex systems.

Awards include AIA New Practices Award, AIA Building Awards, Emerging Architect Award from the Architecture League of New York, SFMOMA Experimental Design Award, Winning Competition Award SF Bay Conservation & Development Commission, Miami Bienal + Beach Competition Award, plus others. Recent winning commissions include Portland State University SRTC public art project, and TriMet Light Rail extension public art project in Portland. The work of FAULDERS STUDIO is published internationally in books and press on contemporary design and theory.
