Erin Pellegrino holds a Bachelors of Architecture from Cornell University and is currently pursuing a Master of Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. Described by her professors as a “maker and a thinker with a strong emotive dimension to her work”. She has an extensive background in woodworking and metalworking, and is an avid furniture designer. Context, materiality, and patterns of relationship drive her design sensibility. Her thesis focused on a Perfumery in Paris, and was awarded the Charles Goodwin Sands Memorial Medal for excellence in Architectural Design.
She has spent the past year traveling extensively throughout Europe. Most recently she was awarded first prize in Redesigning Detroit, a competition for the redesign of a vacant city block in Detroit, Michigan.
This project was a result of a collaboration with Davide Marchetti, a Rome-based architect and Visiting Critic at Cornell University’s Cornell in Rome program.
She also volunteered in South Africa as a part of a Design + Build team to construct a Crèche in Johannesburg. Other projects include a collaboration with Jake Rudin on a renovation of a Richard Meier home in Ithaca, NY as well as construction of a Japanese Tea house in Danby, NY. Academically, she has been awarded both the Seipp and York prizes from Cornell University, as well as consecutive Dean’s List for a consistently high GPA. Professionally, she has continued collaboration with Davide Marchetti on various competitions, as well as web-based work
