Featured Member: Jeffrey Dugan, AIA

Jeffrey Dugan, AIA, is a principal at Dattner Architects who specializes in projects in the public realm. His interest in the everyday experiences of New Yorkers has resulted in projects ranging in scale from major infrastructure redesign to educational and housing projects. Notable recent projects include the Myrtle-Wickoff Station Complex, which reimagines a transit node as a community hub on the Brooklyn/Queens border. This pilot in the MTA’s Design for the Environment program exemplifies Dugan’s ability to bridge the gap between infrastructure and the communities it serves. Similarly to Myrtle-Wickoff, the firm’s New Settlement Community Campus uses a specific use—primary education—and expands the brief to open up certain school facilities to local residents, and to include a community center. Dugan combines his innovative architectural practice with music, and is the founder and owner of recording label GD Stereo. Here, he discusses how he sees New York developing and why he’s been playing more acoustic guitar lately. Continue reading “Featured Member: Jeffrey Dugan, AIA”
