Vladimir Radutny was born in Nikolayev, Ukraine in 1978. In 1989, he and his family arrived in Chicago as part of an immigration wave of Russian Jewish refugees from the former Soviet Union. He earned both his Bachelors and Masters degrees in Architecture from The University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. In 2008, Vladimir founded his Chicago-based architecture and design studio, during which time he has also held teaching appointments at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and the Illinois Institute of Technology College of Architecture where he continues to teach. Vladimir’s multi-disciplinary architecture practice focuses on innovative design solutions that challenge the conventional interpretations of space, function, and material use. His studio’s approach is ideas-driven, relying on imagination and experience to identify the creative nuances within each project. He believes in Architecture as an art form with capacity to not just alter space, but to change perceptions, feelings and habits, transcending the workplace, home, or in-between. His practice has been recognized with numerous AIA design awards, and in 2017 Radutny was awarded the Dubin Family Young Architect Award.
