Amir Kripper is Founding Principal of Kripper Studio. Born in Brazil, raised and educated in Uruguay and the United States, the Boston-based architect originated the multidisciplinary firm to deliver concept-driven design for commercial, multi-unit residential and institutional projects. Kripper's efforts introduce unprecedented innovation and elegance to the real estate community, and they improve market share and profitability. Repeat and new clients support Kripper's ambitious design agenda, in turn, allowing the eponymous studio to expand into urban planning and hospitality commissions while maintaining a continual retail and workplace practice. Kripper has taught or served as a critic at Boston Architectural College, Northeastern University, RISD, Columbia GSAPP, and Harvard GSD. Exposed to Bauhaus-style architecture from a young age, Amir trained at the National University of Uruguay's prestigious undergraduate architecture program before immigrating to the United States in 2005. He earned his Master of Architecture from Columbia University the following year, and subsequently worked at Polshek Partnership and Machado Silvetti.
