The work of Tod Williams Billie Tsien and Associates bridges different worlds - across theory and practice; across architecture and the fine arts. Williams had a seasoned foundation in the practice of architecture with over six years as an associate in the office of Richard Meier before starting his own practice in 1974. Tsien brings to architecture a background in the Fine Arts and a keen interest in crossing disciplinary boundaries.
Both architects maintain active teaching careers parallel to their practice. Tsien has taught at Parsons School of Design, SCI-ARC, Harvard, Yale, and UT Austin. Williams has taught at the Cooper Union, SCI-ARC, Harvard, Yale, and UT Austin and held the Thomas Jefferson chair at the University of Virginia in 1990. They shared the Jane and Bruce Graham chair at Penn in 1998. Billie Tsien is on the boards of the Architectural League, the Public Art Fund, and is a vice president of the Municipal Art Society in New York City. Tod Williams is on the advisory board of the School of Architecture at Princeton.
