Paul Schulhof is a founding partner of Schulhof Rashidi Architects, a practice established with Azadeh Rashidi in 2022 with commissions for two new museum projects: The William King Museum of Art in Abingdon, Virginia, and the Dubuque Museum of Art in Iowa.
Prior to launching Schulhof Rashidi Architects Paul was an architect and partner at Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects + Partners (TWBTA) for 25 years. He was an integral member and key design partner on a wide range of projects that have received awards and other design accolades and been featured in national and international publications. In 2013, he was honored as a partner when TWBTA received the American Institute of Architects Firm Award given to a single practice in the United States each year.
Paul approaches design with a deep commitment to collaboration ensuring that projects are closely connected to their communities, sites, and environments.
His leadership has been distinguished by work on public architecture, notably the Obama Presidential Center in Chicago, which is on track to be one of the largest certified Net Zero projects in the U.S.. He has been a lead partner on the new US Embassy in Mexico City, one of the most complex diplomatic facilities ever built and precedent setting in being the first-ever project under the State Department’s Excellence in Diplomatic Facilities initiative. Paul’s leadership on the Banyan Park campus for TATA Consultancy Services was essential to successfully shepherd the project from the masterplan through construction over a 10 year period. The project was awarded with AIA NY’s “Best in Competition” honor in 2019.
Paul's residential work has won design awards in New York, Connecticut, and Massachusetts and have been published in the New York Times and numerous architectural journals.
Paul has served as a juror on design award programs and panels throughout the country. He has taught at the graduate-level and has served as a guest critic at multiple institutions. He has lectured throughout the United States on topics including craftsmanship, campus building through community engagement, creative visioning and sustainability initiatives. He earned a Bachelor of Science from Cornell University and a Master of Architecture from the University of Virginia. He is a licensed architect in NY, CT, VA, MA, IA and VT.
