David Mayernik studied architecture while pursuing his parallel interest in fine art. His fellowship year at the American Academy in Rome on the Steedman Prize allowed him to also study fresco technique with renowned restorer Leonetto Tintori in Tuscany. Named one of the top forty architects in the United States under forty years old when he was thirty-five, he has accumulated awards for both his built work and his theoretical projects, even as he has continued to publish and exhibit his paintings and drawings. Moreover, he has frescoed his own buildings for TASIS Switzerland, and has frescoed a chapel and facade for the church of S. Cresci in Valcava in Tuscany.

     This range and variety of work is shaped by his deep roots in Italian culture. That culture, imbued with Renaissance humanism, informs not only his work's form, but its meaning. The reciprocal relationship between practice and research is essential to understanding both his work and his publications.
