Julian Palacio is the founder of JP/A, a collaborative architecture and design office based in New York City driven by a culture of innovation and research.
Engaged in projects across a wide range of scales, types, and geographies, JP/A is a practice committed to the realization of transformative work that explores the cultural and social agency of contemporary design. Current preoccupations also focus on the possibilities for structure and materials to redefine formal vocabularies in architecture.
Palacio is the recipient of the 2012 Deborah J. Norden Fund Travel Fellowship from the Architectural League of New York. He is currently an adjunct assistant professor at the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture of The Cooper Union in New York. He has previously taught at Cornell University, the University of Pennsylvania, the Institute for Architecture and Urban Studies in New York, and the Catholic University of America. He received his master's degree from the Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation at Columbia University (New York), and a bachelor of architecture from the Universidad Javeriana (Bogotá, Colombia), where he was cofounder and coeditor of +A Architecture Journal.
