ISSSStudio is an emerging design 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 is based in Austin, TX.
Igor Siddiqui is the principal and founder of ISSSStudio. He is a licensed architect and design scholar with an appointment of Associate Professor with tenure at The University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture. In addition to directing ISSSStudio, he regularly publishes articles, book chapters, and essays that engage the subject matter of the studio’s 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. Siddiqui received his Master of Architecture degree from Yale.
