Join Juergen Riehm, a co-founder of 1100 Architect, as he discusses his work at the intersection of art and architecture. Founded in 1983 from a studio in Soho, much of 1100 Architect’s early work involved commissions from artists, including Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, and Robert Mapplethorpe. This presentation will look back at those early collaborations, as well as explore the firm’s more recent work, including his prolific portfolio of residential environments, in New York and on Long Island’s East End. 

Riehm will be joined in conversation by Suzanne Stephens, the Deputy Editor of Architectural Record and an adjunct professor of architectural history at Barnard and Columbia College.


Juergen Riehm, FAIA, BDA, is a co-founder of 1100 Architect, a New York-based design firm. He believes architecture is an all-encompassing art form, capable of affecting all facets of life and nature with an honest and timeless expression. He has completed many award-winning buildings, including the Queens Central Library: Children’s Library Discovery Center, the Riverside Health Center, the New York Public Library’s Battery Park City branch, and a long roster of arts and residential projects. His work is widely published, including features in Architectural Record, Architectural Digest and The New York Times. 

Riehm received his Diploma in Architecture from FH Rheinland-Pfalz in 1977, and, in 1982, his Post-Graduate Architecture Degree from the Städelschule Academy of Fine Arts, where he currently serves on the alumni foundation’s advisory board. He is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects (FAIA), Member of the Chamber of Architects in the German State of Hessen, and a member of Germany’s Bund Deutscher Architekten (BDA).
