David J. Lewis, AIA, is founding principal of LTL Architects, a design intensive architecture firm founded in 1997 with Paul Lewis and Marc Tsurumaki, located in New York City, and is an Associate Professor of Architecture at Parsons, and Adjunct Professor at the University of Limerick, Ireland.  Professor Lewis will make an argument, through the  recent work of his office, for an architecture of social intensification.  At a time when digital technology and social media consumes more of our attention and time, segregated into self-selected niches and polarized crowds, Professor Lewis will make the case that architecture is now in a unique position of reasserting physical and public space as a necessary stage for dialogue and engagement.

Professor Lewis’s firm, LTL Architects, realizes inventive solutions that turn the very constraints of each project into the design trajectory, exploring opportunistic overlaps between space, program, form, budget and materials.  The principals of LTL Architects are co-authors of the monographs, Intensities (Princeton Architectural Press, 2013), Opportunistic Architecture (Princeton Architectural Press, 2008) and Situation Normal….Pamphlet Architecture #21 (Princeton Architectural Press, 1998). The work of LTL Architects is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Carnegie Museum of Art. In addition to academic positions at Parsons and University of Limerick, Professor Lewis is a member of the Advisory Council of the College of Architecture, Art and Planning at Cornell University.   He received his Master of Architecture from Princeton University, a Master of Arts in the History of Architecture and Urbanism from Cornell University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Carleton College.
