Christoff:Finio Architecture (C:FA) is a New York-based architecture and design studio committed to making buildings and environments that bring meaning to place. We make physical and cultural connections in our work as a way to help shape the public and personal space of memory. We take great joy in exploring a contemporary language of architecture rooted in material expression and intellectual rigor. This approach is realized through collaboration with a broad group of forward thinking clients and consultants. Led by partners Taryn Christoff and Martin Finio, the projects of the eight-person studio are unified by their response to context, culture, and performance goals. Through an energetic and interactive process from conception to completion, C:FA approaches each project with a sense of invention and innovation. Designs are calibrated to perform optimally at all scales, from new buildings, to furniture, to collaborations with artists. C:FA’s work has been exhibited internationally, including at the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York, the 2012 Architecture Biennale in Venice, Italy; “The City and The World” at The European Center for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies and The Chicago Athenaeum in Madrid, Spain; 414 Gallery in New York City; “Insight USA – Shaping the Future” at the Aedes Gallery in Berlin, Germany; “Young Americans. New Architecture in the USA” at the Deutches Architekturmuseum in Frankfurt am Main, Germany; “Liquid Stone: New Architecture in Concrete” at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C.; and “City Lights Design Competition Exhibition” at the Museum of the City of New York in New York City.
