Keith Engel approaches architecture with a vested interest in the complex intersections between the urban environment, social fabric, regulatory parameters and built form. Born and raised in the Bronx, he has a nuanced perspective of a city in constant transition, and a personal commitment to a collaborative practice that invigorates neighborhoods and promotes constructive dialogue within the urban realm. Keith is concerned with architecture’s ability to affect change and provide meaningful and equitable experiences, and he has dedicated his career to practicing socially responsible design. Maintaining a focus in affordable and supportive housing, his project experience has also included transportation work, large-scale government complexes, commercial developments, and historic preservation.
Keith holds a Bachelors of Architecture from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
