Since joining Silman in 2004, Eytan has managed projects involving adaptive reuse, new construction, historic preservation, sustainable design, art installations, and structures incorporating unconventional materials such as recycled 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 advocated for and assisted in the development of Silman’s 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 Modernist concrete thermal bath complex in Morocco.
