Igor Siddiqui’s current design-research focuses on encounters between manufactured products and architectural spaces, resulting in works that interrogate part-to-whole relationships, design and fabrication technologies, and the expanding gradients between interior and exterior environments.
Siddiqui’s work has been published in IDEA Journal: Interior Ecologies, Soft Shells: Porous and Deployable Architectural Screens, Ante Art Journal, Constructs Yale Architecture, and featured in SNaP (Sweets News and Products) Magazine, Archinect, and suckerPUNCH Daily. His participation in academic conferences and the resulting published proceedings includes ACSA Annual Meeting, IDEC Conference, NCBDS Conference and EAAE Theory Subgroup Workshop. In addition, his design work has been exhibited and presented by numerous venues of diverse types such as the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans, New York Center for Architecture, Austin Center for Architecture, Austin Museum of Art, Arthouse, Flux Factory, Design Within Reach, Bakery Design Collective, Gallery 3A, Yorkarts, LaMaMa, Chashama and Axis Gallery in Tokyo, among others.
He is the principal and co-founder of the Brooklyn-based design practice ISSSStudio, which serves as his primary platform for the realization of commissioned projects. Preceding his work with ISSSStudio are several years of professional practice with 1100: Architect (1999-2006) and Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates (1998-99), both in New York City.
Prior to his appointment at the University of Texas, Igor Siddiqui taught at the University of Pennsylvania, the California College of the Arts, the New York Institute of Technology, and Parsons the New School for Design.
