Koray Duman, AlA, LEED is principal at Büro Koray Duman in New York City. Originally from Turkey, Duman earned a bachelor’s in architecture from the Middle Eastern Technical University. He furthered his studies at the University of California Los Angeles’s Graduate School of Architecture and Urban Design with a master’s degree in architecture. Prior to establishing his own firm, he was lead architect for several museum and institutional projects around the USA.

Büro Koray Duman is an idea-driven, international architectural practice that brings together both analytical and playful approaches to a broad range of projects. The studio recently completed a master plan and a new exhibition space for the Richard Prince Foundation in upstate New York. In 2014, a studio building and sculpture garden in Harlem for artist Richard Prince and the new flagship stores for Design Within Reach , both designed by Buro, opened their doors to the public. Current works include a prototype for an Islamic Cultural Center and master planning and an addition to Isamu Noguchi Museum in New York City. Büro was honored with Emerging Firm of the Year by Architizer 2017 A+ Awards.
