From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Gluckman Mayner Architects is an architecture firm located in New York City with Richard Gluckman and David Mayner in partnership since 1998. The architects are known for minimalist design, evident in five pioneering art galleries that moved into the Chelsea gallery district from the SoHo neighborhood during the late 1990s, the proposed expansion of the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Mori Arts Center (2003) in Tokyo.

Richard Gluckman studied architecture at Syracuse University, where he returned in 2005 to design the Warehouse, current home of the Syracuse University School of Architecture. He has designed a wide range of buildings including an apartment building in lower Manhattan, and houses in Texas and Long Island New York.

David Mayner began working with Richard Gluckman in 1980, and became Principal of the predecessor firm to Gluckman Mayner in 1988. Mayner studied architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he received his Master of Architecture degree in 1976.

Gluckman Mayner Architects has won a number of American Institute of Architects awards including in 2007 a Design Award for Architecture (NYS AIA Chapter), the Honor Award for Excellence in Architecture (AIA College Committee) and in 2008 an Honor Award and a Building Type Award (NYS AIA Chapter). While most of the design projects of the firm have been in an urban setting, its unique minimalist sensibility has also been on exhibit in more natural settings, such as that of the Mii amo Spa at the Enchantment Resort in Sedona, AZ.
