Please join us November 9 at 5 PM in GOL 3.120 for a lecture with visiting Eugene McDermott Centennial Visiting Professor Margaret Griffin, FAIA. Griffin is a co-founder and principal of the Los Angeles-based, Griffin Enright Architects, a collaborative practice that yields creative, forward-thinking designs. The firm's work has been extensively published, and has received over forty awards for design excellence including the 2006 American Architecture Award from the Chicago Athenaeum. In addition to guiding an emergent practice, Griffin is an educator with more than twenty-two years of experience teaching at universities including Syracuse University, USC, and UCLA. She is currently on the design and technology faculty at SCI-Arc.
Griffin earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Syracuse University and a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Virginia. She was granted a fellowship from the American Academy in Rome to investigate the relationship between urban form and landforms, a subject she continues to examine in her architectural practice. Griffin also expands her practice through community service, both as an appointed board member to Santa Monica’s Architectural Review Board and previously as a director on the Los Angeles AIA Board of Directors.
