Selldorf Architects


The Sunset Park Material Recovery Facility is a processing center for New York City’s curbside glass, metal, and plastic recyclables which is being undertaken by Sims Municipal Recycling and the City of New York.


For David Zwirner’s second location in Chelsea, Selldorf Architects designed a 30,000 sf building that is the first LEED certified commercial gallery in the U.S. The neighborhood’s industrial-aesthetic is the inspiration for the exposed concrete façade.

Brown University, John Hay Library

Built in 1910 by architects Shepley, Rutan, and Coolidge, the John Hay Library is Brown University’s first dedicated library building. Originally, the grand Reading Room contained tall coffered ceilings, carved oak shelving, hanging pendants, and an open plan.

Luma Arles

Luma Arles is a new contemporary art center that brings together artists, researchers, and creators from every field to collaborate on multi-disciplinary works and exhibitions. Located south of Arles’ historic city center, the project repurposes the industrial ruins of a 16-acre rail depot and introduces a new public park.
