Atelier David Telerman

Atelier David Telerman is a Paris-based architectural office, working on various scales with a constant set of preoccupations with geometry, volume, light and the strong belief that each project should express and reveal the inherent truth of the place it occupies.
This approach materialized with the McNeal 020 project completed at the end of May 2020 in Southern Arizona, near the border of Mexico. The architecture refers to the vastness of the American desert, its position and geometry revealing specific characteristics of the surrounding landscape. Architecture takes on its full meaning when it reveals the unseen quality of nature.
Publications include Architectural Record and Domus 1056 with guest editor Tadao Ando.
