Austerity Measure
Thursday, March 31, 2011

In buildings for both private clients and emergent community institutions, Alan Organschi has explored the intersection of environmental constraint, social need and available resources to produce architecture that is environmentally sensitive and culturally and physically durable. A trained cabinet-maker and builder as well as a teacher, Organschi has developed a practice and a pedagogy that seeks to link broad based conceptions of architectural space, form, and program to the physical means and methods of producing them. He is the founding principal of the fabrication and construction company JIG Design Build, an offshoot of his work at Gray Organschi Architecture. Gray Organschi’s work has received numerous awards and he teaches and lectures frequently.
