James Biber


James Biber has practiced architecture in a multi-disciplinary environment for more than 25 years. Trained first as a biologist, then as an architect, James has surrounded himself with a variety of thinkers from different fields to expand the notion of architecture. His work centers on a belief that architecture, as an expression of identity, is inseparable from its language of form and tectonics. The result is an architecture tied closely to its context; whether physical, cultural or metaphorical.

Biber Architects has created projects ranging from oceanfront private residences in the Hamptons to a museum for the iconic Harley-Davidson motorcycle company. Filling in this broad spectrum of projects are restaurants, showrooms, retail stores, schools, exhibitions, streetscapes and urban design projects spanning the US market. Current clients include the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the United States Senate in Boston; the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT; Fashion Center NYC; and the James Beard Foundation.

James lives in New York with his wife Carin Goldberg, the graphic designer, and more books than he knows what to do with.
