Eytan Solomon has practiced structural engineering for over 15 years. Since joining Silman in 2004, he has managed projects for adaptive reuse, historic preservation, new construction, sustainable design, art installations and sculptures, and the design of buildings that use unconventional materials, such as repurposed shipping containers.
A few of Eytan’s recently completed projects include the new Hoxton Hotel in Brooklyn, NY; the historic preservation and adaptive reuse of Park Avenue Synagogue in New York City; and a private residence in Brooklyn, NY, composed of 21 shipping containers. He is currently overseeing the multi-use expansion of the Powerhouse Workshop in Gowanus, Brooklyn, NY, which involves both new construction and extensive structural repair, for the not-for-profit Powerhouse Arts, an organization that works to increase access and participation in the arts. In the not-for-profit realm, Eytan has been an advocate for and led the development of our Building Equity initiative.
Eytan currently serves on the NYC Department of Buildings’ Structural Technical Committee and has been a member of the STRUCTURE Magazine editorial board since 2018. In November 2019, at the Association for Preservation Technology International Conference, Eytan presented his work on Sidi Harazem, a Brutalist thermal bath complex in Morocco.
