Alan Organschi

Alan Organschi is a design principal and a partner at Gray Organschi Architecture in New Haven, Connecticut—a firm recognized at the local, regional, and national level for its innovative conception and careful crafting of architectural projects, which range from the adaptive reuse of damaged buildings and neighborhoods to the development and implementation of low-impact component assembly systems for ecologically delicate sites. As a member of the faculty of the Yale School of Architecture, Organschi coordinates Yale’s first-year graduate housing studio, which culminates each spring with the student design and construction of an affordable house in New Haven. Organschi has lectured widely on architecture, technology, and sustainable urban renewal. As a consulting expert and an active member of the Advisory Board for The Seedlings Teacher Collaborative, Organschi works closely with New Haven private and public-school teachers to bring project-based education to the city’s schools. He was a German Chancellor Fellow from 1992 to 1993.
