A practicing architect and urban designer, Jillian Crandall AIA explores local and global networks in architecture, infrastructure, and urbanism. With a social and physical infrastructure research background, she approaches design with a technical rigor and enjoys the challenge of incorporating civic architecture into facilities with high functional requirements.
Jillian holds a B.Arch from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and is currently working toward her masters on Theories of Urban Practice at Parsons, The New School. She has guest-lectured and contributed to publications at Columbia, Pratt, RPI, and Parsons. Jillian values the communication of ideas and evolving dialogues. To that end she is an active member of the American Planning Association and the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIANY), where she has organized several public programs with the AIANY Transportation & Infrastructure Committee. Dedicated to working with young students interested in pursuing professions in design and construction, Jillian has volunteered alongside Dattner colleagues as a Mentor with the ACE Mentoring Program.
