BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES
 
 
Asymptote Architecture was founded by principals Hani Rashid and Lise Anne Couture in 1989. Since Asymptote’s founding the New York-based firm has been at the forefront of technological innovation in the field of architecture and design and received international acclaim for visionary building designs and large-scale master plans.
Asymptote is currently working on a broad range of commissions at sites in the United States, Europe and Asia including a 100,000-square-meter master plan in Bergamo, Italy; two commercial office towers in Budapest, Hungary and the World Business Center Solomon Tower in Busan, South Korea, a skyscraper that will be among the tallest buildings in Asia at 560m. Also in progress are the Penang Global City Center (PGCC), a one-million-square-meter cultural, hotel and performing arts complex in Penang, Malaysia and two contemporary art pavilions commissioned by The Guggenheim Foundation for the Cultural District of Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Other recent competition proposals from Asymptote include a large-scale master plan and landmark tower design for the Yongsan International Business District in Seoul, South Korea; the winning entry for an iconic, forty-story corporate headquarters in Tbilisi, Georgia; a design for the Dubai International Financial Center, a 146-story building that punctuates that city’s skyline; an exhibition and music hall in Vitoria, Spain; and a dramatic design for a new Guggenheim Museum in Guadalajara, Mexico.
In 2004 Hani Rashid and Lise Anne Couture were awarded the Frederick Kiesler Prize for Architecture and the Arts given in recognition of exceptional contributions to the progress and merging of art and architecture.
