Austin brings creativity and thoughtful design to all his work at Embarc, where projects must be sympathetic to the layered complexities of each site and constituencies our designs support. His experience designing for a diverse typology of projects in Boston and beyond informs his interest in the social impact of architecture and the city.
Austin holds a Master of Architecture from Rhode Islands School of Design and after graduating he received a research grant to travel and study in Tunis, Tunisia. He has previously worked for a variety of boutique architectural firms, including Studio Luz Architects and is a member of the artist collective AS220 in Providence, Rhode Island.
In addition to bringing a high level of design to professional practice, Austin has taught design studios at Boston Architectural College, Roger Williams University and drawing foundations studios at Rhode Island School of Design. He has published articles in Yale Paprika! and frequently enters design competitions that push conceptual ideas of form and social potential of place making.
