Lexi Tsien

Lexi Tsien is a co-founder of Soft-Firm, based in New York City. Lexi is interested in new forms of representation, vernacular spatial practices, and their ability to shape and self-determine the built environment. Soft-Firm pursues progressive and collaborative programs to promote agency and equity, seeing architecture at the intersection between culture and built infrastructure. The practice has designed interactive exhibitions, residential and commercial projects, and public installations. Their work is speculative and concrete: taking a playful and lo-fi approach to visual perception, elemental forms, and material contrast. Lexi has taught at Columbia University, Yale School of Architecture, Parsons, RISD, and the Cooper Union.
