Andrew Weigand


Architect, etc.


An architect focused on cultural projects and motivated to improve the built environment and its underlying systems.

My design approach is grounded in listening, learning, iterative making and relentless, critical re-evaluation and testing. Past and ongoing collaborations with clients, fabricators, researchers, and artists inform my outlook.
