The Los Angeles-based firm of Griffin Enright Architects, established in 2000 by Margaret Griffin, FAIA and John Enright, FAIA, fuses interests in innovation and experimentation with a desire to explore cultural complexities relative to the built environment. Their versatile practice includes projects ranging from large-scale commercial and residential commissions to furniture design and gallery installations. Their work moves beyond the traditional scope of architectural practice, underscoring connections with the surrounding urban fabric and landscape by reinforcing existing conditions or creating new ones that allow architecture, urban context and landscape to be experienced in new ways. Griffin Enright’s comprehensive approach to design depends on the simultaneous blurring and exploitation of distinctions between inside/outside, built form/landscape, site/urban context and theory/practice. The firm is the recipient of over thirty awards for design excellence including the 2006 American Architecture Award from the Chicago Athenaeum. The firm’s work has also been published and exhibited extensively in national and international publications and exhibitions and their project ‘Paradox Box’ is part of the permanent collection at the MAK (Museum for Applied Art / Contemporary Art) in Vienna, Austria. In addition to guiding an emergent practice, Margaret and John are educators in design and technology at SCI_Arc, where John is also the Vice Director.
