Ammar Eloueini (born in Lebanon) is a registered architect who established AEDS (Ammar Eloueini Digit-All Studio) in Paris in 1997. Starting in 1999, the office operates with locations in Europe and the United States. Since its creation, the office has completed projects at different scales and in different geographical locations. From object design, such as urban furniture for the city of New Orleans, to four stores in Europe for Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake, the office has developed an expertise in solving a wide range of design problems serving a wide range of clients including the Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum, the Contemporary Art Museum in Chicago, and choreographer John Jasperse in New York. The diversity of the clients and location of each one of the projects express AEDS’ commitment to innovation and design excellence.
The work has been recognized with a series of awards such as the New York Architectural League’s Emerging Voices (2007), seven AIA Design Excellence awards, and the French Ministry of Culture Nouveaux Albums des Jeunes Architectes (2002). The work of Ammar Eloueini is part of four permanent collections: MoMA Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Canadian Center for Architecture in Montreal, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans.
Between 1999 and 2005, Ammar Eloueini chaired the Digital Media Program, and taught design studio, theory and digital fabrication at the University of Illinois in Chicago. Currently, he is an Associate Professor at Tulane University and serves as thesis director on regular basis at the ENSCI in Paris.
