John Enright / Griffin Enright Architects

Gui Auditorium / Knowlton Hall
October 31, 2018 - 5:30pm

John Enright, FAIA, will lecture in Knowlton Hall’s Gui Auditorium at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, October 31. Enright is a co-founder and principal of Los Angeles-based Griffin Enright Architects, where his work demonstrates the power of design thinking to transform architecture. Griffin Enright’s work has been extensively published; locally, nationally and internationally, and has received dozens of awards for design excellence including, local, state and national AIA Awards and The American Architecture Award from the Chicago Athenaeum.

Enright brings technical rigor to his design vision: prior to founding his firm, he honed his interests in the complexities of architectural form with the integration of construction information systems and innovative building systems during his lengthy tenure as an associate at Morphosis. At Griffin Enright Architects, his attention to detail and interests in strategic form combine to create an expanded architecture that challenges boundaries.

Since 2001, Enright has taught at the Southern California Institute of Architecture (SCI-Arc), where he is a professor of design and technology and Vice Director/Chief Academic Officer. Prior to his current position, he served as undergraduate program chair from 2010 to 2015. Enright has also taught at Syracuse University, the University of Houston and the University of Southern California. His academic research focuses on design and building technology, including new digital paradigms as applied to fabrication and construction.

Enright has served on the advisory committee of the national AIA’s Educator Practitioners Network, and he currently serves on the Los Angeles Mayor’s Design Advisory Panel and NCARB's Integrated Path Evaluation Committee. He holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Syracuse University and a Master of Architecture from Columbia University.
