David D Heymann
David Heymann is an architect, and the Martin S. Kermacy Centennial Chair in the School of Architecture. Heymann received a Bachelor's Degree in Architecture from the Cooper Union, and a Master's Degree in Architecture from the Graduate School of Design at Harvard. He worked for Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, and I.M Pei and Partners, prior to founding his own firm. The focus of Heymann?s writing and research is the complex relationship of buildings and landscapes, particularly natural landscapes. This is also the centerline of his architectural practice, with commissions for clients including the Audubon Society and President George W. and Laura Bush, for whom he designed an environmentally sustainable house in Crawford, Texas. His architectural work has been variously published, and recognized with design honors, including selection for Emerging Voices by the Architecture League of New York. He is currently working on a series of essays that ask how buildings make landscape.
