John Grinstead

New York, NY, US



John is building a career focused on the art of building. He has interest in the micro and macro: desiring to one day start a furniture line, an adaptive reuse architecture firm, a disaster relief non-profit and hopefully also be a part of designing a skyscraper. He has fallen in love and set up camp in Brooklyn and cannot imagine himself anywhere else in the world. 

He continues to carry on the skills developed in his undergraduate education and professional experience while honing new ones: focusing on detail oriented design, a growing understanding of materiality and is piece by piece learning the art of building each day. He is eager to learn, is very teachable, and has an intuitive design sense.
