COMING SOON TO THE GALLERY
Larry Bowne is an architect and Professor at Syracuse University.
After earning his masters in architecture from Harvard University, Larry served his internship in Boston (the Office of Peter Rose, Cambridge Seven Associates) and in New York City (Selldorf Architects, BKS/K Architects), where he served as project designer on both institutional and residential projects in the U.S., Canada, and abroad.
In 1997, he opened a small practice in New York City with two classmates from Harvard. The firm, B&R Projects, prepared designs for projects both domestic and international, including commissions in Buenos Aires, Zurich, and Kosovo. While the firm worked primarily on residential projects mostly New York City apartmentsundefinedthey also designed retail, commercial and public spaces. The firm completed dozens of projects in New York City and beyond at a range of budgets (from tight to luxurious), timetables (from truncated to extended) and scales (furniture to multi-level commercial). Publications and exhibitions of his design work include articles in Dwell and Interiors magazines and shows at the Marianne Boesky Gallery (New York, NY) and the University of Kansas, Marvin Hall (Lawrence, KS).
Since 2003, Larry has served as principal of Larry Bowne Architects, formerly of New York City and now located in Manhattan, Kansas. He recently completed work on the conversion of a former sweatshop into multi-unit live/work artists’ spaces in the Ridgewood, Queens neighborhood of New York City. Current projects in design include a loft in New York City’s TriBeCa neighborhood.
Larry has taught at Kansas State University since the fall of 2003, first as a visitor and now as tenure-track faculty. He teaches architectural studio, building construction, and seminars in architectural theory. He recently served as faculty advisor to an interdisciplinary team of architects, landscape architects, and interior architects, who designed and built a small-scale project in conjunction with the Extreme Makeover: Home Edition television show. In collaboration with Project Locus founder Patrick Rhodes, Larry is coordinating a student design build project in New Orleans, LA, the House of Dance and Feathers. The project will be included in the Venice Biennale in the fall of 2006.
Larry’s research interests include urban housing, civic infrastructure, and tectonic innovation.
