Geoffrey Goldberg

Biography

Geoff has practiced for more than 30 years in Chicago as an architect and urban designer. Along with his own practice, he has taught architectural design and theory at University of Illinois at Chicago for several years. Current focus is on notions of form, particularly the construction and composition of complex shapes, with investigations into the archives of several artists and architects as part of research on the history of form.

Work has been done at a variety of scales, from details to managing large urban infrastructure projects in both the public and private sectors. Awards have been received for design, urban planning, and writings on engineering. Geoff is a native Chicagoan, and received a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Chicago (‘77), and M. Arch. from Harvard University (’82).
