Ada Tolla

Ada Tolla is Adjunct Assistant Professor of Architecture at Columbia GSAPP and a founding partner of LOT-EK. She has a Master Degree in Architecture and Urban Design from the Universita’ di Napoli, Italy, and has completed postgraduate studies at Columbia University.

LOT-EK has achieved high visibility for its sustainable and innovative approach to construction, materials and space, through the upcycling of existing industrial objects and systems not originally intended for architecture. LOT-EK is also recognized for the use of technology as an integral part of architecture, for addressing mobility and transformability in architecture and for working across art and architecture. LOT-EK’s projects have been published in national and international publications, magazines and books, including The New York Times, The London Times, Herald Tribune, The Wall Street Journal, Domus, A+U, Wired, Metropolis, Mark and more.

LOT-EK’s latest monograph, Objects + Operations, was released by Monacelli in August 2017. Earlier monographs include: Urbanscan, published by PAP in February 2002; LOT-EK Mixer, published by Edizioni Press in 2000 and MDU Mobile Dwelling Unit, published by DAP in June 2003.

In December 2011, Ada Tolla was recognized as USA Booth Fellow of Architecture & Design by United States Artists (USA).
