With a focus on material cultures and public space, After Architecture has completed projects in New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Vermont, Washington D.C., California, and Europe including a memorial in Washington D.C. and an installation at the Oslo Architecture Triennale 2019.
Schumann received his Master of Architecture from Princeton University where he was awarded the Princeton University Fellowship and holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Cornell University where he was awarded the William S. Downing Prize for Architectural Design. He is the recipient of the Robert James Eidlitz Fellowship and the Robert A.M. Stern Architects Travel Fellowship, which investigated material cultural identities in alpine Europe as manifest through modernism in the work of Otto Wagner, Jože Plečnik, Edvard Ravnikar, and Edoardo Gellner.
Schumann’s current research leverages technology as a mediator between material quality and authored design intent. He has pioneered several robotically controlled pneumatic forming systems including Airforming and Pillow Forming. His work has been supported by institutions including the American Institute of Architects and the Center for Architecture, and has been published in venues including ACADIA, CAADRIA, ARCC, and ACSA.
Prior to joining UVA, Schumann was the 2019-2020 Tennessee Architecture Fellow at the University of Tennessee Knoxville where he conducted research on fabrication with invasive plant species. He has previously taught at Syracuse University, Cornell University, and Princeton University, among others. His professional training includes work at the offices of Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects and Anmahian Winton Architects.
