BioJeffrey King completed his undergraduate and graduate studies in Architecture with a minor in Political Science at Tulane University in New Orleans. He then began a professional career that has taken him from Sydney, Australia to Washington DC, New York, Munich, Germany, Boston and now Pittsburgh. In previous professional experiences with Richard Meier and Partners, Agrest and Gandelsonas Architects and the Office of Peter Rose Architects, King developed a broad range of experiences managing commercial, civic, institutional and residential projects. He continues that experience now with Pittsburgh’s EDGE Studio, whose commitment to the arts community and the future viability of Pittsburgh’s downtown he shares.
King is currently involved with numerous community based projects for the continued improvement and redevelopment of Pittsburgh’s North Side, where he resides. These include the redevelopment with new housing and commercial structures of the derelict Federal Street, once the North Side’s busy hub, and implementation of a master plan for improvements and additions to Allegheny Commons park. He and his wife Jennifer live in a renovated 1842 townhouse in the historic Mexican War Streets.
