Jeff Maeshiro is an architectural thinker from Honolulu, Hawaii, with a Master of Architecture degree from the California College of the Arts (CCA) and a Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Hawaii at Manoa. He is currently a Designer at Future Cities Lab and Research Assistant at the Urban Works Agency at CCA in San Francisco, with experience at Sou Fujimoto Architects in Tokyo, Japan and Walters, Kimura, Motoda Landscape Architects in Honolulu, and served as Art Director at the education startup Harvest Learning Group. His work is focused at the intersection of construction’s computational/robotic future and architecture’s capacity to structure the individual and the collective. This project seeks to meld polygons and politics into a new design thinking, polimetricism. His projects have been featured in Hackaday, Maker Faire, Architect Magazine, on display at the Possible Mediums exhibition at the University of Michigan, and ACADIA 2014 at USC. His thesis “The Protocols of Agency: Relational Camp Planning//Printed Displaced Settlements” recently won the 2014 MArch Thesis Prize and the all-school Spring 2014 Jury Prize at the California College of the Arts.
