AD Interviews: Hani Rashid, Asymptote Architecture

We visited Asymptote’s new offices in Brooklyn to interview Hani Rashid.

Hani co-founded the firm back in 1989 with Lise Anne Couture, becoming pioneers of the digital revolution. One of their first projects, the NYSE Advanced Trading Floor (2001), explored the relation between virtual and physical worlds starting the debate on the new digital tools in architecture.

Their recent work includes the Yas Marina Hotel (awarded by our readers with the Building of the Year Award 2009, Hotels & Restaurants) in Abu Dhabi and 166 Perry Street in NY.

Asymptote’s continuing exploration of new forms, building techniques and multi-media has been reflected on several installations and exhibitions, objects, and recent competitions such as the Kaohsiung Port Terminal.
