Yasmin Vobis

Yasmin Vobis is cofounder of ultramoderne, a research-based architecture studio focused on the productive tension between the perceived world and its possible representations. The work ranges from drawings and essays to urban analysis and architectural design, with each site taken apart and reconsidered through digital and analog techniques. The studio’s work has been exhibited extensively, most recently at the Boston Society of Architects, where the half-scale installation Four Corners develops a new structural and spatial order using cross-laminated timber.

Vobis received her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of California, Berkeley and her Master’s Degree from Princeton University, where she was awarded the Butler Traveling Fellowship and the Suzanne Kolarik Underwood Thesis Prize. She has practiced in San Francisco and New York in the offices of Ogrydziak / Prillinger Architects, Guy Nordenson and Associates, and Steven Holl Architects, and has taught studio and representation courses at Princeton. She was also a designer in residence at MoMA PS1 for the Rising Currents charrette and exhibition.
