about.

Erin Pellegrino is the founder of Make, Think, Design and co-founder of Out of Architecture.  She is a designer focusing on synthesizing the various applications of design thinking with craft, context, and collaboration. She is also a Visiting Critic at Cornell University, where she teaches design studios and a seminar focusing on the future of the profession. Recently, she was named as one of the ten NCARB Scholars of Professional Practice.

 

Her professional practice focuses on design/build interventions with deep contextual relationships and rich material expression. Her most recent work is a series of renovations of modernist structures on Martha’s Vineyard. Described as a "maker and thinker with a strong emotive dimension to her work", her design sensibilities are driven by the idea of architecture as an instrument through which program, materials, spatial and human relationships are orchestrated. Her practice expands to industrial and furniture design, as well as digital and web-based experience design.
