Studio A Schram is an architecture firm founded in 2007 by Arnaldur Schram, based in Reykjavík (Iceland) and New York (USA).

We are a process-based firm. We strive to be critical, finding ways to do things better, offer better projects to the world, the clients and ourselves. We work in the worlds between: research work and playfulness; hands-on-materiality and digital methods; traditional carpentry and the digital.

Arnaldur received his Bachelor of Architecture degree at Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), and his Master of Science degree in Advanced Architectural Design at Columbia University (GSAPP). Arnaldur has taught at University of Pennsylvania; School of fine arts in Reykjavik Iceland; is a regular critic at GSAPP, NJIT, RPI and NYIT. Arnaldur is a member of American Institute of Architects (AIA) and Architecture Association of Iceland (FIA). Arnaldur has been a close collaborator with various firms: Workshop/APD; Rockwell Group; THG Architects; Baron and Baron; Gulla Jónsdóttir.
