Dillon Pranger (M.Arch. '15) is a Midwest American–born designer, fabricator, and educator. His current research is an extension of his master's thesis, focusing on the disassembly and reconfiguration of industrialized sites. Specifically, he is interested in understanding the physical and ephemeral impact of the reappropriation of industrial, found materials and how intrinsic values of these materials manifest within architecture. Some of his works based on this research have been featured in Cornell University's John Hartell Gallery, Association vol. 8, and Architect Magazine, among others.
Pranger has practiced high-rise and mixed-use design, most recently in the offices of Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, on the Hudson Yards Development in New York City and Goldman Sachs City Headquarters in London; and in both architectural and master plan design at Eisenman Architects, on the Pinerba Condominiums. His latest focus has been small-scale pavilion construction through his role as the project lead and manager for the 2017 PS1 MoMA Young Architect's Program, Lumen, through Jenny Sabin Studio.
Pranger holds a master of architecture from Cornell University and a bachelor of science in architecture from the University of Cincinnati.
