PROFILE

Lynn has been at the cutting edge of design in both architecture and design culture in general when it comes to the use of the computer. The buildings, projects, publications, teachings, and writings associated with his office have been influential in the acceptance and use of the advanced technologies germane to the aeronautic, automobile, and film industries of Southern California in architecture.  He is the author of eight books.  In 2002 he led a group of UCLA students to participate in the Venice Biennale of Architecture representing the United States in the American Pavilion and in 2009 he received the Golden Lion at the 11th Venice Biennale of Architecture.  He was honored with the American Academy of Arts and Letters Architecture Award in 2003. Forbes magazine named Lynn one of the ten most influential living architects in 2005 and in 1999 Time Magazine named him one of 100 of the most innovative people in the world for the 21st century. He was named a 2010 Fellow of United States Artists (USA).  His work is in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and the Canadian Center for Architecture in Montreal where he recently opened the final of three “Archaeology of the Digital” exhibitions he curated focusing on the development and use of computers in architecture culminating in a digital archive of 25 projects as well as seminars, public programs, and publications.
