NEIHEISER ARGYROS is a London and Athens based multidisciplinary architecture practice committed to both playful experimentation and serious research. Founded by Ryan Neiheiser and Xristina Argyros in 2015, the studio’s interests are not defined by a particular project type, but by an intellectual curiosity, an artistic rigor, and a strong commitment to creating environments and objects with cultural resonance. We see design as a conversation, a loose exchange of forms and ideas, an open dialogue with our histories and surroundings. NEIHEISER ARGYROS has projects in Europe and the United States of America.
Principal Ryan Neiheiser received his Masters degree in 2008 from the Princeton University School of Architecture after earning a dual Bachelors degree in Engineering and Art from Swarthmore College in 2001. Neiheiser has worked at a number of award winning firms in Europe and the United States, including the Office for Metropolitan Architecture (OMA) in Rotterdam and Diller Scofidio and Renfro in New York City. Neiheiser has taught master’s level thesis at Princeton University and has been teaching a design studio at the Architectural Association since 2014. He is a co-founder of the architecture publication, Another Pamphlet, was a co-editor of the book, Agenda: Can We Sustain Our Ability to Crisis? (Actar, 2010), and has published articles in Project, Due, New Geographies, Bidoun, and Pidgin. Neiheiser is originally from Cleveland, Ohio and has lived in Rotterdam, Brussels, and New York prior to moving to London in 2014.
