Ken Conzelmann began teaching at City Tech in 1990 as an adjunct instructor. He discovered that education and practice were distinct, yet interdependent realms, which together offered a potent synergy.

Ken's work explores many fronts with particular interest in cultural context, textural conditions and the physical/psychological dimensions of the architectural experience. He has had the opportunity to participate in a full spectrum of work settings and genres: sole practice and partnership; collaborations with architects, artists and engineers; consultation with small and mid-sized design firms; and employment with large government agency and high profile corporate enterprises. This broad exposure allowed for engagement on a wide range of projects: rural and urban homes, historic row house and apartment renovations; a new bank tower; a 16th century guest house/hotel conversion in Meissen (East) Germany; a short list proposal for a Buddhist temple; a LEED-certified, fully progressive early childhood center, including geothermal heating/cooling mechanics and a garden roof; and an award winning entry for The High Line Design Ideas Competition. This varied and expansive portfolio provides a healthy mix for him to share with students and colleagues.

Professor Conzelmann is director of the Architectural Internship program, teaches 3D Design as an interdisciplinary liaison with ADGA, and continues as a regular guest critic and speaker beyond City Tech. He has studied and worked in England, Germany and Austria and today continues in private practice in downtown Manhattan.Ken Conzelmann began teaching at City Tech in 1990 as an adjunct instructor.
