Leeser Architecture's designs emerge from cultural, social, and technological patterns present at the site. Our projects use technology to reframe the understanding of architectural conventions and production, creating powerful environments in the process. By shaping and refocusing the conventional awareness of these forces we create complex and richly varied spatial experiences, new programmatic relationships and beautifully simple organizations. Institutional projects, museums and performing art centers are areas of particular interest and expertise.
In 2008, Leeser Architecture won the competition to design an iconic hotel in Abu Dhabi, UAE. In 2007, the studio won first prize for the competition and began initial stages on the World Mammoth and Permafrost Museum in Siberia. Recently, Leeser was selected for invited competitions to design the Moscow Polytechnic Museum, Moscow Economic School in Russia, Theater Heidelberg in Germany, and the Oasis Village, a residential project in Dubai.
Latest completed projects include a $70 million expansion and renovation of New York's Museum of the Moving Image, the 3LD Performing Arts Center in Lower Manhattan, the first cultural institution to rebuild after September 11, 2001, and two inaugural 50,000 square foot art exhibitions for LABoral Centro de Arte y Creacion Industrial in Gijon, Spain.
