Annabelle Selldorf FAIA is a German-born architect and founding principal of Selldorf Architects, a New York City-based architecture and interior design practice. Her notable projects include Neue Galerie New York: Museum for German and Austrian Art; renovation of the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts; as well as 200 11th Avenue and 520 West 19th Street, two high-rise residential buildings located along New York’s High Line.
Born in the early 1960s in Cologne, Germany, Selldorf received her Bachelor of Architecture degree from Pratt Institute in New York and a Master of Architecture degree from Syracuse University in Florence, Italy.
Selldorf is also recognized for designing gallery and exhibition spaces including Hauser & Wirth Galleries in London, New York and Zurich; and the Gladstone, Michael Werner, David Zwirner and Acquavella Galleries in Manhattan. She has also designed studio spaces for Jeff Koons, David Salle and Not Vital. Selldorf routinely collaborates with the Gagosian Gallery on exhibition designs.
Her approach to design has been described in the Wall Street Journal as "...about restrained and understated elegance. From reinvented Beaux-Arts galleries to handsome residential towers, the Selldorf statement goes against the grain." Her work has also been praised by Paul Goldberger, Architecture Critic for The New Yorker as "...a kind of gentle modernism of utter precision, with perfect proportions."
In 2010, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg honored Selldorf’s firm with a Public Design Commission Award for the design of the Sunset Park Materials Recycling Facility. Selldorf has also been named by Architectural digest as one of the top 100 designers in the world. In 2009, she was interviewed on the Charlie Rose Show.
She is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects and President of the Board of the Architectural League of New York. She also serves on the Boards of the Design Trust for Public Space and the Chinati Foundation.
