Portrait of Patrick Curry.

Patrick worked with COOKFOX from 2005 to 2009 and returned to the firm in 2015. He served as the project architect for Skanska’s LEED Platinum headquarters in the Empire State Building, and aided in the design of a private residence in the Hamptons. In addition, he was the project manager for the South Pier Improvement Project, which laid the plan for a 100 MW natural gas plant on the Gowanus Canal, designed to generate cleaner, more efficient power for Brooklyn neighborhoods. He recently completed construction administration for a second private home in Easthampton and is currently managing a 460-unit apartment building in Chelsea for L&L MAG Development. Patrick helps these projects achieve well crafted, high performance design through a focus on tight, resilient construction systems that aid in occupant comfort and wellness, and energy efficiency.

Prior to joining COOKFOX, Patrick worked with David Woodhouse Architects and Marpillero Pollak Architects, where he helped design the Morton Arboretum Visitor Center and the Queens Plaza Reconstruction Project, respectively. He also spent five years working on a variety of public building projects in the NYC Department of Design and Construction’s Office of Sustainability. In addition, Patrick has been teaching a class at the Pratt Institute for the last decade where he focuses on passive design and energy efficient buildings.

Patrick is inspired by the way regional architecture is shaped by culture and climate, and works to create sustainable, site specific architecture that engages its community.
