Joel McCullough


I am an designer, architect, planner, artist, and observer.

I have worked professionally in Pittsburgh and Boston for nearly five years on a diverse set of architectural situations. Alongside my professional practice, I continue to individually pursue a fluid investigation into a number of design works of various scales. The interdisciplinary methodology along with my architecture practice invigorate my critical approach to understand how architecture is a collection of interrelationships in the world. 

I graduated with university and college honors from Carnegie Mellon University for a Bachelor of Architecture. Now, I am currently seeking a Masters of Science in Advanced Architectural Design at Columbia University in New York to further my rigorious questioning of design approach.
