Carrie Norman and Thomas Kelley founded the New York and Chicago-based design
collaborative Norman Kelley in 2012. Together, their professional and theoretical work
re-examines architecture and design’s relationship to vision, prompting their observers
to see nuance in the familiar. The practice has contributed work to the 14th Venice
Architecture Biennial (2014) and the inaugural Chicago Architecture Biennial (2015).
The practice was a recipient of the Architecture League of New York Young Architect’s
Prize (2014). Their design work, which includes a collection of American Windsor
chairs, is currently represented by Volume Gallery in Chicago. Norman received a
Bachelor of Science in Architecture with Honors from the University of Virginia and a
Master in Architecture from Princeton University. She is a licensed architect in the state
of New York, and previously worked as a Senior Architect with SHoP Architects, in
New York City.
