Billie Tsien has been in partnership with Tod Williams since 1986. Their studio, Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects, located in New York City, focuses on work for institutions - museums, schools and non-profits; organizations that value issues of aspiration and meaning, timelessness and beauty.  Their buildings are carefully made and useful in ways that speak to both efficiency and the spirit. A sense of rootedness, light, texture, detail, and most of all experience are at the heart of what they build. Parallel to their practice, Tsien maintains an active teaching career and lectures worldwide.
