Chris Fogarty, AIA is a co-founding Principal of Fogarty Finger Architecture. He oversees the concept and design development of all architecture projects in the office. After studying architecture at University College’s Bartlett in London, he received his Masters in Architecture from University of Edinburgh.
Prior to founding Fogarty Finger in 2003, Chris was a Senior Designer at Skidmore Owings and Merrill Architects (SOM) in the London, Washington DC and New York Offices, playing a significant role in national and international competitions and completing many award-winning office and mixed use buildings.
Chris’ current and recently completed projects include The Dime in Williamsburg, Brooklyn: a 23-story, 345,000 SF tower merging commercial, retail and multifamily residential units adjoining the existing Dime Bank; 141 Willoughby in Downtown Brooklyn: a 24-story, 349,000 SF commercial building; a new 50-story mixed-use tower at Court Square in Long Island City, Queens; and Astoria West in Astoria, Queens: a three-building complex encompassing 508,000 SF.
His ability to work across many building types is underpinned by the intellectual rigor with which every project is approached. Each design is seamlessly integrated into contexts with meticulous thought to the surrounding space and visual importance.
