Perry Kulper

Perry Kulper was born in Ventura, California in 1953. He is an architect and Associate Professor of Architecture at the University of Michigan. Previously, he was a faculty member at SCI-Arc for 17 years and held visiting teaching positions at Penn and ASU during that time. After his graduate studies at Columbia University, he worked in the offices of respected mentors Eisenman/ Robertson, Robert A.M. Stern, and Venturi, Rauch, and Scott Brown before moving to Los Angeles. His primary interests include the roles and generative potential of architectural drawing, the outrageously different spatial opportunities offered by using diverse design methods in design practices, and in broadening the conceptual range by which architecture contributes to our cultural imagination. He was the Sir Banister Fletcher Visiting Professor at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL 2018-19. In 2013 he published Pamphlet Architecture 34, ‘Fathoming the Unfathomable: Archival Ghosts and Paradoxical Shadows’ with friend and collaborator Nat Chard. They are at work on a new book to be published by UCL Press. More recently, he has been snooping around under the hood of said digital realms. Fantastic beasts have also been on his mind.
