Harry Elson, AIA


An architect for 25 years, Harry's life-long commitment to design matured while working for two master form givers, the architects Charles Gwathmey and Edward Larrabee Barnes. It was under these mentors that he gained hands-on experience with the kinds of projects he excels in.

Combining his vision of modern design with a straightforward style of leadership and management, he has built a thriving practice that continues to take on new challenges. With all projects, the buck stops with Harry and that’s the way he likes it.

A registered architect in New York and Connecticut, Harry is a member of the American Institute of Architects. He earned a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Virginia and a B.A. with Honors in American Studies from Brown University. He graduated from Phillips Academy, Andover, where he was awarded the Samuel F.B. Morse Prizes for Art and the Marshall S. Kates Prize for American History, and attended Eton College in England, where he completed A Levels in Studio Art and Art History.

Harry has completed over 100 commercial, institutional and residential projects, as well as exhibition, graphic, furniture and lighting design. His work has been featured in local, national and international books, magazines and newspapers.
