EVAN BENNETT received his Masters in Architecture from Princeton University and his Bachelors in Art History from Oberlin College. Prior to forming VAMOS, Evan worked with the Rockwell Group in New York and with Rem Koolhaas and the Office for Metropolitan Architecture in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Evan has worked on a broad range of projects, including urban designs, cultural buildings, retail prototypes, restaurants, hotels, and various interdisciplinary projects. At Rockwell Group he helped to provide the essential bridge between the meeting room and the design studio to satisfy both the clients’ demands and the team’s goals through the process of design. As one of the project architects for Pacific City, a five building hotel and condominium development for W Hotels in Huntington Beach, CA, Evan worked with the Rockwell design team to create the masterplan for the site as well as the character of each of the buildings. The project scope included conceptual design for the overall hotel massing, facades, typical rooms, landscape, lobby, and public spaces. Views, privacy, and natural light were of utmost importance to create the clean modern environment for indoor-outdoor living on the beach. Evan also contributed to the Syracuse Connective Corridor Competition, an invited competition to create a cultural corridor to connect the Syracuse University campus with the city’s downtown.The project proposed highly visible bus shelters to occupy the run-down storefronts along the bus route. This strategy of ‘viral leasing’ intended to create shared spaces within the city to both activate the street and encourage communication between students and the city’s residents. The bus shelter designs used landscape, environmentally-sensitive materials, and a technological infrastructure sponsored by the university. Evan has also been actively involved in teaching at Cornell University, Parsons The New School for Design, and has participated in design reviews at Syracuse, Columbia, and Princeton Universities. Evan is registered architect licensed in New York State, a member of the AIA and a LEED-Accredited Professional since 2006.
