Andrew Bernheimer is a Brooklyn-based architect and Associate Professor of Architecture at the Parsons School of Design. Bernheimer leads an eponymous firm responsible for a wide variety of residential, civic, and cultural projects, including new multi-unit affordable housing developments across the five boroughs as well as award-winning private residences in the northeast region. The studio is also currently the only private architectural firm in the United States with unionized labor.
Bernheimer edited “Timber in the City”, a book featuring innovative practices in wood construction published by ORO Editions, and co-edited the collection “Fairy Tale Architecture” (ORO Editions, 2020) with Kate Bernheimer. The latter is a collection of work by Bernheimer's own practice and several other architectural practices based at Places Journal, investigating storytelling, narrative image-making, and the architectural space of literature. In 2018 Bernheimer was elevated to the College of Fellows in the American Institute of Architects.
At Parsons Bernheimer teaches in both the graduate and undergraduate architecture sequences.
Previously Bernheimer was a founding partner of the award-winning firm Della Valle Bernheimer. In 2009 "Think/Make", a monograph on the first decade of his practice at Della Valle Bernheimer was published by Princeton Architectural Press.
