Associate Professor of Architecture, University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning

Perry Kulper is an architect and Associate Professor of Architecture at the University of Michigan since 2006. In a prior life he was a SCI-Arc faculty member for 17 years. Subsequent to his graduate studies at Columbia University he worked in the offices of Eisenman/ Robertson, Robert A.M. Stern and Venturi, Rauch and Scott Brown, before moving to Los Angeles. His primary interests include: the roles and generative potential of architectural drawing; the different spatial opportunities offered by using diverse design methods in design practices; and in broadening the conceptual range by which architecture contributes to our cultural imagination. He was the Sir Banister Fletcher Visiting Professor at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL 2018-19. In 2013 he published Pamphlet Architecture 34, ‘Fathoming the Unfathomable: Archival Ghosts and Paradoxical Shadows’ with friend and collaborator Nat Chard. They are at work on a new book to be published by UCL Press. Recently he optimistically ventured into the world of the digital, attempting to get a handle on ‘cut + paste’ and ‘magic wand’ operations in Photoshop. Even more recently he has also been snooping around under the metaphorical hood of digital realms. Fantastic beasts have also been on his mind.


Kulper’s interests include the generative potential of architectural drawing, the different spatial opportunities of diverse design methods, and broadening the conceptual range by which architecture contributes to our cultural imagination.
