I am Jack London Freedman, a photographer, cross-disciplinary designer, and student of architecture.
I use my foundation in photography to inform my spatial design thinking, emphasizing engaging compositions, evocative palettes, and expressive textures. I will soon complete my graduate studies as an M. Arch 2 student at the Southern California Institute of Architecture along with my academic capstone, a graduate thesis titled "I SEE THE SUBLIME IN YOU." You can check out all my creative works at jackfreedman.com.
In the past, I attended Washington University in St. Louis, where I received my Bachelor of Science in Architecture with Honors, minoring in Urban Design and Psychology. After graduation, I explored the worlds of professional design, finding passionate pursuits in exhibition design at the Mildred Lane Kemper Art Museum in St. Louis, Missouri, digital design and fabrication for art studio BIGHEAVY STUDIOS in Brooklyn, New York, and environmental graphics design for 2 x 4, inc. in New York City.
The Sustainable Hospitality Challenge is an invaluable opportunity for me to explore a new industry and a new way of studying people, experience, and space. In my role as lead design thinker and visualizer for Fytosi, my visions in novel sustainability practices, innovative building typologies, and human-centered storytelling through design shine through.
