VENICE MAGAZINE profiles Oppenheim Architecture founder, Chad Oppenheim

Summer 2018 Young And Restless, By: Robin Hodes, Portrait by: Felipe Cuevas “Chad Oppenheim is scrolling nonchalantly through projects on his laptop, each image more mind-blowing than the next.

They would disappear into the landscape if it were not for his use of long, straight lines that often makes the building stand out against it.” […]
