Phillip Anzalone

Associate Professor at New York City College of Technology


Professor Anzalone is a licensed Architect and Principal in the Brooklyn firm Atelier Architecture 64, with built projects locally as well as nationally and internationally. His professional work seeks to integrate the practice of architecture with the academic subject that Professor Anzalone teaches: advanced materials and systems, digital design, analysis & fabrication, new modes of construction, and design for adaption.

Professor Anzalone's research includes the incorporation of advanced science and technology into the architectural practice, design and construction. His work has included advanced materials and building systems, building integrated solutions, deployable / adaptable / temporary constructions and the study of the space and methods of making. In order to test his theories, Professor Anzalone has built twelve installations in nine different countries exploring how work can be developed and deployed in unfamiliar and uncertain situations. These projects have served as case studies for his research into automation techniques in site-work, designing for temporary or changing conditions, and developing adaptable structures. Professor Anzalone has authored extensive journal papers, chaired symposium, developed patented systems, participated in grants and constructed full-scale prototypes in his areas of research.

Profesor Anzalone is a member of the America Institute of Architects, a Board Member of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture, and on the advisory board for a number of industry and academic partners.

Professor Anzalone's past academic career has included a ten-year appointment at Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, where he was the Founding Director of the Laboratory for Applied Building Science (formerly the Digital Fabrication Lab) as well as the Director of the Building Science and Technology Department. Professor Anzalone lead research and curriculum at the Lab, taught core graduate courses in architectural technology, as well as provided consulting for numerous creative constructed projects at the School and with industry partners.

Professor Anzalone has been awarded a Bachelors of Professional Study in Architecture from SUNY Buffalo and a Masters of Architecture from Columbia University. Past experience include work as an architectural designer with Greg Lynn Form and a facade consultant with R. A. Heintges and Associates.
