We are considering installation of a BBQ pit at Clickspring as yet another lone star joins the team. Christopher Ferguson, a “native Texan with a passion for burgers and bad jokes,” also has a taste for international design inspiration. He received a Bachelor of Architecture from UT Austin in 2013, which included a 2011 semester in Paris with David Elalouf at the École Nationale Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris-Belleville. Two additional traveling studios took Christopher to Belo Horizonte, Brazil in 2012 and Talca, Chile in 2013. (And he was recently awarded the prestigious Jet Blue Frequent Traveler Card!)
After graduation, Christopher joined Austin-based Andersson-Wise Architects, where he worked as an architectural designer and directed much of the firm’s online brand management and print media. During this time he co-founded DO.GROUP DESIGN, a partnership dedicated to empowering young designers by giving them the skills needed to bring their products to market. The partnership celebrated its first product — the Bundle — launching in Brooklyn in September 2014.
Christopher enjoys writing and photography, publishing architectural criticism and imagery online and in print. Credits include Texas Architect, a bi-monthly magazine published by the Texas Society of Architects. He is currently serving on the Executive Board of the Austin chapter of the American Institute of Architects as a liaison to the University of Texas at Austin and actively pursuing architectural licensure in the State of Texas. When he’s not busy, he enjoys feeding his seven-year-old Cornish Rex, Little Bit. (Don’t worry about the BBQ thing — a Cornish Rex is a cat, not a chicken.)
