Matthew Krissel has a unique ability to understand the complex elements of a design problem, synthesizing its requirements with high design aspirations in order to arrive at a meaningful solution.
He has applied this skill toward competitions for the Stanford University School of Medicine and winning entries for Cellophane House™ and the Embassy of the United States in London. Matthew participated in a Department of Energy-funded study of energy consumption in the average American home, which led KieranTimberlake to develop the Urban Loft Initiative, a project that ultimately fed Loblolly House and LivingHomes projects.
Matthew has more than fifteen years of experience as an architect and has worked on projects for prominent institutions including the US Department of State, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts in Philadelphia. His current projects include the new US Embassy in London and a new facility for New York University.
A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania School of Design, Matthew has returned to the program as an assistant teacher and has also lectured at the National Institute of Building Sciences, Facades+, and elsewhere.
Matthew is currently the chair of KieranTimberlake's Digital Design Visioning Group, an initiative dedicated to digital innovation, visualization, and knowledge sharing within the firm. Prior to joining KieranTimberlake, he worked at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill and Kohn Pedersen Fox in New York City.
