Gillian Shaffer Lutsko



Bachelor of Architecture, Pratt Institute Master of Architecture II, Princeton University

Gillian Shaffer Lutsko is the Citizen Architect Fellow 2022-23 at USC, a designer and founder of the architecture studio, sl Collective. Her design and research interests center around the question of how architecture should respond to the most pressing issues of our time: the ongoing climate crisis; broader understandings of individual and cultural identities; worsening economic inequity; and the societal and cultural impacts of new technologies on space and visual media.

Her design work has been supported by the National Endowment for the Arts and other international organizations and has been exhibited in the Venice Biennale: Fundamentals (2014), the Seoul International Biennale on Architecture and Urbanism (2017), and several galleries in New York. Recent design work and critical writings have appeared in Project Journal for Architecture, CARTHA, POOL Magazine, Pidgin, and the Doe. Before founding her practice, Shaffer Lutsko worked at architecture offices in Berlin, Tokyo, Boston, and New York City. She has previously taught at UCLA Architecture & Urban Design and the Pratt Institute's Berlin program. She graduated from the Pratt Institute with a Bachelor of Architecture and holds a Master of Architecture II from Princeton University, where she received a certificate in Media + Modernity.
