In December of 2016, Ceren Bingol was named the interim Architect-in-Residence for the spring semester of the 2016-17 academic year and the entire 2017-18 academic year. She succeeds Bill Massie, who made the decision to leave the Academy after an 11-year tenure.
Currently an architect based in New York City, Bingol is originally from Istanbul, Turkey. She holds a bachelor’s degree from Yale and a Master of Architecture from the Yale School of Architecture. She has held positions at Grimshaw Architects (2005-2011), where she worked on such projects as the Fulton Street Transit Center in downtown Manhattan and the Queens Museum of Art.
She was most recently a Senior Architect at OMA New York (2011-2016) where she led cultural, residential, commercial, and master planning projects, including the Marina Abramovic Institute in Hudson, New York; the competition-winning entry for Albright Knox Gallery extension in Buffalo; and she served as the Project Architect and Manager of the new Quebec National Museum of Art in Quebec City.
While here, Bingol will also be collaborating with Dan Kinkead, AIA, Principal, at SmithGroupJJR, and Aaron Jones (Architecture ’11), a registered architect, illustrator, and fabricator based in Detroit. Read more about visiting architects and lecturers here.
