Brandon Clifford is currently Howard E. LeFevre '29 Emerging Practitioner Fellow at the Knowlton School of Architecture. He received his Master of Architecture degree from Princeton University in 2011, and his Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2006.  During this time, he also attended L’Ecole D’Architecture La Villette.  From 2006-2009, he worked as project manager at Office dA in both Boston and New York.  Clifford also served as editor of Pidgin Magazine from 2009–2011.  Clifford’s work focuses on the realization of digital manufacturing through materials, means and methods of production, as well as the process and representation of direct drawing to better influence the built environment.  His focus is neither on the side of the digital or the physical, but rather in response to both.  His research and work consistently develop reciprocity between drawing and construction.

In 2011, Clifford was selected as the recipient of the prestigious SOM Foundation Prize in Architecture, Design and Urban Design, a Research and Travel Fellowship. In 2008, Clifford co-founded Matter Design with Wes McGee. The practice is committed to experimentation and research at a variety of scales, and recently was selected as a finalist in the international West Cork Arts Center competition.
