Bureau V

Bureau V is a Brooklyn-based design studio led by Stella Lee, Laura Trevino and Peter Zuspan. Its projects range from cultural and commercial buildings to performances, installations, and events. The studio's work often falls on the border of architecture. It includes collaborative performances, such as an ongoing series of spatial sound installations with the musician Arto Lindsay, which has included performances at the Venice Biennale of Art and Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; and Eye to Eye, a piece conceived and performed at the Guggenheim Museum over two days with the art collective Assume Vivid Astro Focus. Bureau V has designed and fabricated a series of fashion week installations with the conceptual fashion label SSWTR, as well as a capsule menswear collection. Bureau V embraces architecture's role in the cultural landscape as fundamentally collaborative. The studio's disciplinary wanderlust has driven it to frequently take steps outside of architecture—to look back upon it with new clarities, perspectives, and complications. Bureau V principals have taught at Barnard College, Columbia University, the University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Design, Syracuse University School of Architecture, and at the University of Kentucky College of Design. They have given lectures and participated in panel discussions at numerous institutions, including Columbia University, Performa, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, the Fashion Institute of Technology, and the Dessau Institute of Architecture. Bureau V and its members have received residencies and support from the MacDowell Colony, EMPAC, and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. Stella Lee and Peter Zuspan both hold Bachelors of Arts and Masters of Architecture from Columbia University. Laura Trevino holds a Bachelor of Architecture from the Instituto Tecnologico de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey and a Master of Science in Advanced Architectural Design from Columbia University. She is a licensed architect in New York State and in Mexico.
