W. Gavin Robb is an architectural designer, scholar, maker, and educator. He is interested in the edge of architecture, where the sublime joins with the everyday. His work explores the boundaries of digital tools, the prosthetic relationship of the tool to the hand, and the role of the architect in civil society.
He attended the Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD), where he received his Master of Architecture degree with Distinction and the AIA Henry Adams Medal and Certificate of Merit for excellence in the study of architecture. While at the GSD, he co-founded the Harvard Geometry Lab, an advanced research lab working at the intersection of complex geometry and computational fabrication. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Architectural History with Honors from Wesleyan University. He has worked at a range of architectural offices and most recently completed several high-profile projects while at Mack Scogin Merrill Elam Architects. His work has been exhibited at the 2016 Venice Biennale and the 2017 Chicago Architecture Biennial. He is currently pursuing work at the boundaries of professional practice and working to construct a newly engaged calculus of architectural design.
