Todd H. Schliemann, FAIA
Todd Schliemann is a Design Partner in Polshek Partnership Architects. His work is recognized internationally for design excellence and has received numerous National AIA Honor Awards, New York State and New York City AIA Awards, and American Architecture Awards from the Chicago Athenaeum, among others. Driving Schliemann’s work is his passionate conviction that while architecture is a personal interpretive art, it is the designer’s obligation to deliver an architecture suffused with the broadest meaning of its context. His careful analyses of specific physical, environmental, historical and societal conditions have resulted in designs that expand the vocabulary of contemporary architecture and elevate public awareness of architecture’s expressive power.
In addition to The Standard, New York, his projects include: Rose Center for Earth and Space at the American Museum of Natural History, University of Michigan Biomedical Science Research Building, Weill Cornell Medical College Weill Greenberg Center, New York Hall of Science, Allegheny College Vukovich Center for Communication Arts, The Mercersburg Academy Burgin Center for the Arts and Riverhouse.

What we create is rooted in how we work: collaboratively, connecting with clients for the benefit of their comminities and the public realm.
We believe in architecture and design as inherently public: open, shared and enduring.
We listen carefully, engage actively and respond thoughtfully. Integrity and ingenuity are fundamental to our process.
Through meaningful dialogue we create an adaptive, passionate working environment and craft innovative, compelling, sustainable solutions.
