Established in 1986 by Iranian-born Cornell-educated sisters GISUE HARIRI and MOJGAN HARIRI, this New York based firm is one of the most progressive American firms of their generation. For nearly 25 years, they have imbued conceptual, residential, commercial and institutional projects with their own unique brand of sensual modernism. In 2010 the firm was included in the prestigious Architectural Digest ‘AD100,’ and selected for inclusion in the Guggenheim’s ‘Contemplating the Void’ exhibition, a celebration of Frank Lloyd Wright’s landmark museum’s 50th Anniversary. Their new Monograph ‘Hariri & Hariri – Architecture: Buildings & Projects’ (Images Publishing) documents the highly creative and evocative twenty-five year career of the internationally acclaimed sister team. This superbly designed book presents the firm’s visionary achievements in the areas of urban, residential, commercial, cultural, hospitality and product design as well as art and design objects. It also includes their much publicized projects such as The Sagaponac House and Studio, the first completed in the now era-defining ‘Houses at Sagaponac’ in Long Island, New York, as well as their Wilton Pool House winner of an Interior Design Magazine “Best of Year Award,” and HGTV’s ‘Top Ten’ #1 landmark pool house.
The ACME Studios was founded by Adrian Olabuenaga and his wife Lesley Bailey in 1985. The company has collaborated with well know artists, musicians and architects producing lines of pens, and art.
