Office of Things C’VILLE

JT Bachman, AIA

Principal, Charlottesville, VA

Originally from Orlando, Florida, JT Bachman completed his Bachelor of Design in Architecture at the University of Florida. For four months in 2008 he lived in Vicenza, Italy while attending the Vicenza Institute of Architecture, a satellite program of the University of Florida. In 2012 he graduated from Yale University where he received the Henry Adams Certificate with his Master of Architecture degree. The following summer he was part of a team of students who designed, fabricated and installed a custom pavilion for New Haven’s International Festival of Arts and Ideas. Most recently, he returned from a four month traveling tour with his wife Katie, where they explored 10 different
countries taking time to photograph, draw and observe both traditional and contemporary forms of architecture while immersing themselves in the surrounding culture.

In addition to his work with Office of Things, he is involved in a number of small scale furniture, product design, and collage projects. His collage series Fool’s Gold was published in Perspecta 47: Money and is intended to evoke a discourse centered around the built environment, ambition, progress, happiness, and cost.
