It’s not everyday the Museum of Modern Art adds your work to their permanent collection. It’s also not everyday that the American Institute of Architects adds you as a Fellow - nor that Fast Company names your group the ‘Most Innovative Architecture Firm in the World’.
But for Gregg Pasquarelli, these accolades (and more) are already a reality. As incredible as his accolades are the work that earned them, including The Barclays Center, Pier 17, and the Brooklyn Tower at 9 DeKalb - Brooklyn’s first supertall structure.
Join TRD and Gregg Pasquarelli, FAIA, for a conversation about what drives his work, what developers and communities should agree on, and why design continues to be such a driving force in urban expansion.
The Salon Series is sponsored by our friends at Bosch, Thermador, and Gaggenau.
Founding Principal, SHoP Architects
Gregg Pasquarelli is at the center of the collaborative and innovative practice SHoP Architects - creating new models for development design.
Gregg currently leads the firm’s most complex and dynamic projects, including the new Fulbright University Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh City, new towers in Rotterdam, Miami, Toronto and Los Angeles - and the recently completed Midtown Center, a one million square foot mixed-use commercial complex in Washington, D.C., centered around a new public square.
Gregg has been a professor of architecture for more than 20 years at Columbia, Yale, and UVA. He received a Bachelor of Science from the School of Business at Villanova University and a Master of Architecture from Columbia University. He is a recipient of the Tau Sigma Delta Gold Medal from the Association of Collegiate Schools of Architecture - and in 2016 was inducted as a lifetime honoree Academician in the National Academy of Design. And if that isn’t enough - Gregg was also the recipient of the Smithsonian Institute's National Design Award in 2009.
