Jeffry Burchard is an Architect.

Architecture is knowledge, a discipline that overlaps with almost everything.
Architecture is expertise, a convergence between the professional and the intellectual.
At Machado Silvetti in Boston I am working on buildings, master plans and, by direct extension, the cities they inhabit and the communities they affect. Our firm was founded on an agenda of experimentation, research and the distinctive resolution of context, materials and form. We continue to build on these, offering a vibrant and experimental contemporary practice. My recent projects include the Global Center for Academic and Spiritual Life in for New York University in Manhattan, the 21 million SF master plan for the Tun Razak Exchange financial center in Kuala Lumpur, the entire master planning and design for the New Model Campus of the Vietnamese-German University in Vietnam, and the green ceramic clad addition to the Ringling Museum in Sarasota, Florida.
At Harvard's Graduate School of Design I teach design studios and professional practice courses, advise thesis student, serve on the school's practice platform research group and participate in various committees
