Chris leads the MVVA creative team in the conceptual and schematic phases of design, enriching the process with his ability to visually conceptualize and creatively problem solve. His design perspective is informed by his interest in the sociology of design and how landscape-centric infrastructure facilitates human experience. Chris was the project designer and contributed to construction supervision of Library Park in Allston, MA, as well as a foreign United States embassy, a corporate campus in New Jersey, and several projects at Harvard University, including the Harvard Law School Crossroads. Chris is currently working on updating and reinvigorating the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial grounds in St. Louis and is the project manager of an international invited design competition to redesign a major corporate headquarters, where we are in competition against West 8, Michel Design, and Ken Smith.
Chris received a Bachelor of Landscape Architecture with a minor in Architectural History from Penn State University, where he was awarded an ASLA Certificate of Merit. He was a visiting design critic at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design during the Spring term of 2012. Chris joined MVVA in 2008.
