Brian Ambroziak’s research engages the creative process, the development of the artistic conscience, and focuses on the complex relationship between design and methods of representation and visualization. He teaches courses in drawing, digital representation and time-based digital media, fundamental design and analysis, and advanced topic studios.
His publications include Michael Graves: Images of a Grand Tour (2005) and Infinite Perspectives: Two Thousand Years of Three Dimensional Mapmaking (1999) with Princeton Architectural Press. He and his wife Katherine Ambroziak have been finalists in design competitions that include the National World War II Memorial and a design for St. Mark’s Coptic Canadian Village.
In 2008, Brian Ambroziak co-founded time[scape]lab. The theoretical designs of time[scape]lab offer a unique framework for considering architecture, both in terms of its representation and its physical existence. The office’s methods of representation rely heavily upon systems of two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and four-dimensional montage embracing fragmentary strategies that allow for open-ended interpretation and bias the acts of writing and collage.
The work of time[scape]lab has been lectured on and exhibited at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (2011), the University of Tennessee’s Ewing Gallery (2012), the Kibel Gallery at the University of Maryland (2012), the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts (2014), and the 2nd Frascari Symposium at Virginia Polytechnic Institute (2014). Their drawings and writing have been included in numerous publications that include Collage and Architecture by Jennifer A.E. Shields (Routledge, 2013) and Confabulations: Storytelling in Architecture (Ashgate, 2015). In 2014, they received an ACSA Faculty Design Award Honorable Mention for their theoretical project entitled Confabulatores Nocturni.
