Phillip Anzalone is a Professor of Architectural Technology at the New York City College of Technology, where he teaches advanced design studio along with courses in contemporary building envelope design, digital fabrication and automated construction processes, and building structures. Phillip’s research includes the application of science and technology to architectural design problems in areas such as advanced materials, automated manufacturing and construction, active/responsive structural and building envelope systems, computational workflow and cyber-physical systems, augmented reality, building integrated machine learning, and innovative building systems. Phillip is the lead research and development faculty for the department’s CNC and Robotic Fabrication and Assembly Laboratory.
Phillip is a practicing Architect and Principal at Atelier Architecture 64, an award-winning firm in Brooklyn, New York with diverse expertise in building design and construction. The firm philosophy is focused on bridging innovative material explorations and fabrication processes developed in the workshop with the specific needs of each project through environmental performance, architectural detailing and methods of manufacturing. Phillip’s work includes residential, commercial and institutional projects, as well as installations and pavilions, with built projects in North America, Europe and Asia. Atelier Architecture 64’s work has won AIA and SARA awards in research, urban and architectural projects.
Phillip is a member of the Board of Directors of ACADIA, the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture, has served as past New York State Regional Director of the American Institute of Architect’s Young Architects, and is currently a Chair of the Professional Practice committee for the NY AIA Center for Architecture.
Phillip has extensive work in the areas of funded research, industry collaborative projects, development and integration of computational construction facilities into the curriculum, integration with professional practice, chairing symposium and think-tanks and directing joint multidisciplinary research projects with educational institutions globally. Phillip holds patents on advanced building manufacturing and construction systems, has been widely published and lectured extensively.
