Igor Siddiqui is an Associate Professor at the School of Architecture and a licensed architect in New York State. He is the principal and co-founder of ISSSStudio, an emerging practice with a mission to expand architecture’s boundaries by operating across a broad range of scales, typologies, and media. In its work, ISSSStudio leverages its constantly evolving experience with the application of digital technologies, material innovations, and research methods while also interrogating conventions that ordinarily constrain design production. The aim is to inventively and effectively contribute to the shaping of the constructed environment through a practice that integrates material production and design discourse. ISSSStudio's work has appeared in Interior Design, Dwell, Artforum, Texas Architect, Tribeza, and SNaP, among many other print and digital publications. Siddiqui regularly writes articles, book chapters, and essays that engage the subject matter of his design work with its broader critical contexts. Before arriving in Texas, he taught at several other American institutions, including the University of Pennsylvania, the California College of the Arts, and Parsons the New School for Design. Preceding his work with ISSSStudio are several years of professional practice with 1100: Architect and Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates.
