Goody Clancy

Goody Clancy, Architecture Preservation Planning from Boston is a Fall 2016 Teaching Firm in Residence. The firm has won more than 150 design awards, including 6 AIA national awards, in work that “connects people in ways that incite creativity and collaboration, and builds social, economic and environmental value, striving to impact society, elevate aspirations, create with purpose, and generate renewal."

Goody Clancy’s studio will focus on the nature of problem solving and collaboration, and what types of environments support discovery, development and innovation at both urban and building scales. With the culture of innovation changing and increasingly multidisciplinary and collaborative, a new typology of innovation spaces is emerging. Goody Clancy recognizes that innovation centers are a powerful generator for urban revitalization and economic development. The studio will design an innovation center in Boston/ Cambridge bringing researchers and entrepreneurs together, with the students working at a range of scales and variety of design exercises, within a variety of design timeframes-short exercises to longer project development, and develop precedents, program, siting studies, schematic design and conceptual design.

Lead participants in the Teaching Firm Studio will be Zsuzsanna Gaspar, AIA, Principal; and David Charney. Ben Carlson, Principal for Urban Planning, Victor Ortale, Business School Sector Leader, Jefferson Poole, Rob Chandler, and Principal Arjun Mande will also be participating in the studio.
