“Architecture is not just buildings. Architecture is the potential to actually think about the way one inhabits our environment,” says Linda Taalman, founder of Taalman Architecture and IT House, Inc. But what’s the future of architecture? And how will architects and designers think about crafting the spaces of the future? Our expert panel takes a peak into the future.

Listen to ARCHITECT Editor-in-Chief Paul Makovsky; Taalman; and Andrew Heid, founder of NO ARCHITECTURE, examine case studies and forward-looking ideas that delve into the future of residential design in this Studio Session.

Andrew Heid studied architecture at Yale University and the Architectural Association as an undergraduate, and received his M.Arch. from Princeton University, where his design thesis earned the Suzanne Kolarik Underwood Prize, the graduate school’s highest honor. Prior to founding NO ARCHITECTURE in 2014, Andrew gained architectural design experience at REX and OMA in New York and Rotterdam, and at Adjaye Associates in London. He also designed and edited Ten Canonical Buildings: 1950-2000 (Rizzoli) with Peter Eisenman. Andrew is currently a visiting assistant professor at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, and previously taught at New York Institute of Technology and Columbia University.

Linda Taalman is an architect based in Los Angeles, where she directs the design studio Taalman Architecture and IT House, Inc. Best known for her sensitive integration of architecture within specific sites, her work explores prefabrication, explorations into the architecture of the house, and artistic collaborations. Recent projects in California include several custom IT House projects, in addition to ground-up and renovation projects. Prior to coming to Los Angeles, she was partner in charge for the Dia Beacon museum renovation project with the office she founded in New York, OpenOffice arts & architecture collaborative. Linda has also taught architecture studios at multiple universities over the past two decades, and her work has been exhibited widely throughout the world, at places including MOMA, MAK, the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia, Art Basel, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, and the Vitra Design Museum.
