About 

Christopher Sondi received his undergraduate Bachelor of Architecture degree from the Private Art and Design School, Pratt Institute. He has studied Architecture, Furniture Design, Technology and Building. Throughout his educational experience at Pratt Institute he has made it a focus to work on modern aesthetics and sensible designs. He has a strong interest in high-rise tower design as well as educational and institutional building typologies.

Christopher has had various professional experiences in the fields of architecture design, as well as construction management. He has gained a strong practical knowledge into the translation of design concepts into constructed realities. He has also worked at Pratt Institute’s architecture production shop faculties where he gained extensive knowledge in fabrication and model production techniques.

Trained as an architect, he believes that great design comes not only from having a keen design eye, but also from experience in fabrication and construction. When a designer also becomes a builder, great and beautiful things can arise.

Christopher currently lives and works between New York City and Long Island.
