TIM DURFEE heads Tim Durfee Studio in Los Angeles. After earning his architecture degree from Yale, Durfee moved to LA to teach architectural design and direct the Visual Studies program at the Southern California Institute of Architecture. Eventually, he reoriented his work toward an expanded interdisciplinary practice at the intersection of architecture, art, and media. Since 2010, Durfee has been professor at ArtCenter College of Design’s Media Design Practices program, a department focusing on emerging roles and contexts for design and technology. Tim Durfee’s independent and collaborative work has won awards and distinctions from the AIA, AIGA, Print, Build, and Architizer. In 2015, Tim was chosen to be included as one of Fifty Under Fifty: Innovators of the 21st Century, by jury Stanley Tigerman, Jeanne Gang, Qingyun Ma, and Marion Weiss.
His work has been published and exhibited widely, and the exhibitions he has curated include Made Up: Design’s Fictions with 40 international architects and designers, and featured Durfee’s installation The Rather Large Array which was award the AIA | LA Honor award for architecture in 2012. In 2015 the exhibition he co-curated — Now, There: Scenes from the Post-Geographic City — received the Bronze Dragon at the Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism \ Architecture, Shenzhen.
