Associate Principal, Kohn Pedersen Fox
Franz Prinsloo is an architect at Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates with over 12 years of experience as a Project Manager. Since joining KPF in 2012, he has collaborated on a wide range of building and program types across China, Singapore, Indonesia and New York City, including office headquarters, speculative offices, mixed-use, residential, and retail. Franz has been involved in the studio’s efforts to develop advanced computational tools for complex façade studies during the design and documentation processes, collaborating with consultants to streamline data sharing methods between architects and contractors.
Currently, Franz is shepherding 111 Murray Street to completion, a 59-story, luxury residential tower with a distinctive, curved glass façade that bestows a dynamic shape to the Manhattan skyline. He is also Project Manager for Brooklyn Point, a 720-foot residential tower across the river in Downtown Brooklyn, which will feature a sculptural façade, eclectic materiality, and a retail podium that integrates with prior phases of the complex development and responds to the diverse streetscape of this bustling neighborhood. Earlier at KPF, Franz worked on CITIC Tower in Beijing, a corporate headquarters that, upon its imminent completion, will be the city’s tallest building and a crown jewel for its central business district.
In 2016, Franz led a workshop at the Facades+ Conference in New York City, which followed significant KPF building case studies from ideation through construction, and was invited to present at the AIANY Center for Architecture. He has guest lectured for the Graduate Real Estate Development Program at Columbia University and has guest critiqued for the Architecture Program at North Carolina State University.
