Michael Young and Kutan Ayata formed Young & Ayata in New York in 2008 to explore the conceptual and aesthetic possibilities of architecture and urbanism. The practice is dedicated to both built commissions and experimental research. The practice views the reality of contemporary building as a provocation for architectural form, material and technology. Both principals teach and view the educational experience as crucial to the continual development of architectural ideas; Young is an Assistant Professor at The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture at the Cooper Union, and Ayata is an Associate Professor and Vice Chair at AUD.
