Hariri & Hariri Architecture is a New York-based multi-disciplinary architecture & design firm established in 1986 by Iranian-born Cornell-educated sisters Gisue Hariri and Mojgan Hariri. Today they are celebrated as two of the most accomplished women in American architecture. Their projects run the gamut from luxury residential developments and hotels to bathroom accessories to single-family houses to high-concept, high-tech experiments. Over 30 years of dedication to research and construction of innovative ideas, they have imbued conceptual, residential, commercial and cultural projects with their own unique brand of sensual modernism.
The firm’s work ranges in scale from architecture, master plans and interiors, to product design and furniture. The work also includes research-oriented prototypes such as the Museum of the 21st Century at the National Building Museum (2003–07), Loft of the Future (1999-2000), Cine Experimental Film Center (1999), and The Digital House, which was showcased in an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1999. In 2010, Hariri & Hariri’s architectural rendering was included in the “Contemplating the Void” exhibit at the Guggenheim for the 50th anniversary of Frank Lloyd Wright-designed museum.
