Tal Schori is an Adjunct Assistant Professor at Columbia GSAPP, a registered architect, LEED AP and founding partner of GRT Architects.

Tal studied visual arts and semiotics at Brown University (AB, 2003) before moving to New York to work as the Manager of the non-profit gallery, Storefront for Art & Architecture. In addition, he worked as an editorial assistant at Cabinet Magazine, and as a studio assistant to various artists including Christian Marclay and Peter Halley. After two and a half years in New York he moved to Mexico City where he worked with Arquitectura911 on Mexico’s entry to the Venice Architecture Biennale. He moved back to the US to pursue architecture at Yale (M.Arch 2010) where he edited the journal Perspecta and served as a teaching assistant in the architecture and history of art departments.

Upon graduation Tal worked at various firms in Los Angeles and New York including a year at Michael Maltzan Architects and 5 years at Deborah Berke Partners (DBP). While at DBP, he was the Project Architect for both residential and academic projects of various scales. In addition, he was the editor of DBP’s monograph, House Rules, published by Rizzoli in 2016.

Following the founding of GRT, Tal has continued to serve as an invited guest critic at schools of architecture and has worked as a teaching artist for underserved communities with the Center for Urban Pedagogy. He grew up in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Usonian community in Pleasantville, NY and has been practicing judo since he was four.
