Armand Graham is a New York-based architect who focuses on residential, commercial, and object scale work. He is particularly interested in the integration of aesthetics and environmental sustainability and creating spaces and objects that make people happy.
Prior to launching his own practice in 2012, he worked for several different firms including Asymptote Architecture and ARUP Milan. He has held lead design positions on a wide variety of projects, including the award-winning Yas Hotel, the expansion of the Venice Airport in Italy and smaller-scale residential work.
More recently, Armand founded TIMBR in order to explore design possibilities using salvaged wood from upstate New York. In contrast to the oftentimes slow pace of architecture, Armand finds the immediacy of designing and producing custom furniture and objects exciting; it’s also a way to use new digital fabrication technologies. He recently collaborated with Sasha Ritter on the Totoro Collection of sculptural stools.
Armand received his Master of Architecture from Yale University in 2006. He obtained his bachelor's degree from Princeton in 2000 majoring in architecture, and his senior thesis focused on the French artist/architect André Bloc and his aesthetic movement, the Groupe Espace. He loves the great outdoors and surfs whenever possible.
