Julian Palacio Architecture Studio (JPAS) is a design-driven office based in New York. The practice operates as a dynamic platform for realizing projects of diverse types, scales, and geographies while engaging with questions related to the contemporary built environment.

Our experience extends from the design of the public realm to private residences, interiors, and temporary installations. Central to our work is a strong commitment to crafting unique spaces deeply rooted in their sites and cultures. We seek to elevate our daily rituals, fostering meaningful interactions and connections with one another and the environment around us.

Julian Palacio is the founder of JPAS and Assistant Professor Adjunct at The Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture of The Cooper Union. He is a MacDowell Fellow, and a recipient of the Deborah J. Norden Fellowship from The Architectural League of New York.  

Julian’s work and research has been widely published and exhibited. His current interests operate at two scales. At the scale of the building, his research explores a reinvigorated engagement with the realm of structures, probing the territory at the convergence of geometry, material culture, and fabrication, to find new spatial and formal potentials in architecture. At the urban scale, his research is invested in the ways in which architecture helps define and reconstructs notions of collectivity in the contemporary city.    

Recently, Julian has led the design and fabrication of several installation projects. Ibeji was installed for the opening of dieFirma Gallery in New York City, and Manifold was installed on the grounds of the Festival des Architectures Vives, in Montpellier, France. 

Before establishing his independent practice, Julian worked with Office dA, TEN Arquitectos, and BH leading the design of award-wining projects in the United States and Latin America. Prior to Cooper Union, he taught at the University of Pennsylvania and Cornell University.

Julian holds a Master’s degree in Advanced Architectural Design from the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at Columbia University in New York, and a Bachelor’s degree in architecture from the Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, Colombia, where he was co-founder and co-editor of the magazine +A.
