Perry Kulper rethinks the parts that make up architecture. His serene constructions appear to make perfect sense until one delves into the teeming parts of the drawings and discover a logic and fragments that are unlikely associates. He devises new terms to gather disparate parts into beguiling assemblies. As you move into his drawings the sensation is a little as if one has just discovered the exquisite meal we just ate was made of discordant and possibly unpalatable ingredients. His work is full of delight and invention.
Perry is an Associate Professor at the University of Michigan. For many years he taught at Sci-Arc in Los Angeles. From both schools he leaves a trail of talented (and devoted) students who have blossomed under his tutelage. Before he started teaching he honed his talent working for some of the most eminent American architects.
