ACSA 101 Keynote Lecture Gregg Pasquarelli

Gregg Pasquarelli is an American architect and a founding partner of SHoP Architects of New York. This design think tank has pushed the architect’s realm past form making and into software design, real estate development, emergent construction research, and the co-development of new sustainable technologies. SHoP’s recent work includes the Barclays Center at Atlantic Yards in Brooklyn; a two-mile esplanade and park along the East River Waterfront; the Innovation Hub government complex in Botswana, Africa; the South Street Seaport redevelopment; a new Major League Soccer stadium in New York; and projects for Google in Mountain View, CA. Pasquarelli received his architecture degree from Columbia University and has taught at Yale, Columbia, the University of Virginia, and the University of Florida. He has lectured globally and his work has been reviewed and published in periodicals such as Architect, Architectural Record, The New Yorker, Wallpaper, Metropolis, Wired, FastCompany, Surface, Dwell, A+U, and The New York Times, among others. SHoP’s work is in the permanent collection of The Museum of Modern Art. As both a practitioner and educator, Pasquarelli’s commitment to challenging the entire process of building has made a convincing argument to a generation of architects that beauty and technological proficiency are not mutually exclusive.
