Jeff Dugan is motivated by a deep-seated interest in the development and improvement of quotidian urban spaces. From large projects that involve major components of a city’s infrastructure, such as rail and air transportation, to educational spaces, community facilities and supportive housing, Jeff is committed to creating positive experiences for the everyday person. He finds inspiration in spaces that engage users and that offer opportunities for socialization, reflection and enlightenment. As a musician, he has developed an acuteness for improvisation and collaboration, which he brings to his role as a designer, mentor, and an orchestrator of multifarious projects.
Jeff is actively involved in the American Institute of Architects, where he co-chairs the New York Chapter’s Transportation & Infrastructure Committee. He studied at Georgia State University and holds an Associate of Applied Science in Architectural Technology from Southern Illinois University.
