Chris joined Merge in 2016. His interests in digital fabrication, material properties, complex geometry, and experimental construction techniques have defined many of the projects in Merge’s portfolio including commercial office interiors, multi-family housing, and residential homes.
Prior to joining Merge, Chris held positions at Hashim Sarkis Studio, ARO, PLY Architecture and Asymptote Architects. He also worked on a series of material installations and small residential spaces as a Project Manager at Ibanez Kim Architects.
Chris received a Master of Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD), where his Master thesis ‘Standard Deviations’ examined building code and its relationship to changing typologies of health and recreational spaces. At the GSD he received the Penny White Traveling Grant for the proposal ‘Recreational Squatting : Skate Culture and the Appropriation of Infrastructural Landscapes’. Chris previously earned a Bachelor of Science in Architecture with Distinction from the University of Michigan’s Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning.
