Jeffrey spent his formative years working with renowned Atlanta-based firm Mack Scogin Merrill Elam Architects.

Since 2009, he has taught architecture studio and lecture courses at Georgia Tech, Southern Polytechnic State University, Auburn University and Kennesaw State University.

More About the Exhibit

The installation explores parametric variations emanating from a series basic steps: (1) given a space, (2) populated with control points, (3) define curves, and (4) join to create surfaces. Exploration of variations of this concept are used as an exercise for teaching parametric modelling; the drawings in this exhibit have been created by Georgia Tech Master of Architecture students learning visual scripting, techniques of representation, and approaches for surface panelization, through support of this project. Depictions are arranged in a spectrum, from modest departures of the original diagram to more and more complex propositions, demonstrating a range of design pathways stemming from a singular script. One instance is selected for further detailing and fabrication at full scale.

The exhibit will be on display May 24 through June 3.
