Jeffry Burchard is an Architect. He studies and returns architecture through his deep engagement with the full breadth of the Discipline.
Jeffry is an Associate at MSA in Boston, collaborating on important domestic and international architecture, urban design and master-planning projects throughout the world. He has recently completed the New York University Global Center for Academic and Spiritual Life in Manhattan and a master-plan for the 21 million square foot Tun Razak Exchange in Kuala Lumpur. Currently, Jeffry is the Project Architect and Urban Designer for the new Vietnamese-German University in Binh Duong Province, Vietnam. Jeffry is licensed in the USA and accredited by NCARB and is an active member of the AIA and the BSA.
Jeffry is on the faculty at the Harvard Graduate School of Design where he offers instruction in Core Architecture Studios and advises thesis students. He has also taught Architecture studios at the Boston Architectural College and has recently reviewed student work at the Architectural Association, RISD, Columbia, Cornell, Pratt, Northeastern, UPenn and New York Institute of Technology.
Whether at the office or in the studio Jeffry's work is centered on the themes of continuity and nuance. Continuity - not in terms of formal smoothness, but in reading architecture as cyclically motivated and situating architecture as buildings in time. Nuance - not in terms of unresolved complexities, but in knowing architecture as the convergence of undecidable relationships and in setting the stage for further impulse.
Jeffry attended the GSD as a post-professional M.Arch II student, graduating with Distinction. Prior to this he received concurrent B.S. Arch and M.Arch degrees from the University of Idaho where he was awarded the AIA Henry Adams medal. As a student at Idaho he led the successful effort to convince the State Board of Education to re-establish the College of Art and Architecture.
