Graduate Architecture

Philip Ryan

Senior Lecturer

Prior to forming Studio Modh Architecture, Philip Ryan worked for Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects in New York for fourteen years in design and management leadership capacities before leaving as a Senior Associate in 2012.

His design and construction experience while at the office was extensive including notably the design and construction of the AIA Honor Award winning American Folk Art Museum in New York, the AIA Honor Award winning Skirkanich Hall at the University of Pennsylvania, and the Barnes Foundation in Philadelphia, PA. The experience at Tod and Billie‚Äôs studio has equipped him with a deep appreciation for the capabilities of architecture to enhance place as well as a sophisticated understanding of how to innovatively use material and detail buildings of import. 

Teaching is a critical component of the architectural process and Philip is currently an adjunct lecturer at the University of Pennsylvania. He has taught graduate and undergraduate studios at the Rhode Island School of Design and City College of New York and has been a guest critic at the University of Texas at Austin, RISD, Yale University, City College, Wesleyan College, and Columbia University.

Philip is a registered Architect in the state of New York and Pennsylvania, a member of the American Institute of Architects and has been certified by NCARB.
