“..one of the most conspicuous architectural debuts to appear in Southern California in a number of years..”
— Christopher Hawthorne, The Los Angeles Times
‘Best of What’s New — Designers to Watch’
— Harper's Bazaar
Zellner’s approach is not a radicalization of architecture, but a deviation–an attempt to reactivate quotidian practice. By delving back into building, he questions the very notion of experimentation.
— Mimi Zeiger, KCET Artbound
Zellner is the architect of choice for young L.A. galleries... “I think he’s on his way to becoming a major L.A. architect,” says gallery owner Susanne Vielmetter. “He’s part of a generation of architects, and maybe artists too, whose approach is not male, paternal, ego driven.”
