Erin Pellegrino

Erin Pellegrino (B.Arch. '14) is an architectural designer focusing on design/build interventions with deep contextual relationships and rich material expression. Her most recent work is a series of renovations of modernist structures on Martha's Vineyard. Her design sensibilities are driven by the idea of architecture as an instrument through which program, materials, and spatial and human relationships are orchestrated.

Before focusing solely on her own work, Pellegrino spent time in the offices of Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects and Studio Gang, honing a focus on craft, rigor, and quality design. She holds a bachelor of architecture from Cornell University, and an M.B.A. and M.Arch.II from Harvard GSD.
