Christopher Gray has worked as an Architect and Professor of Architecture for over 50 years, in England and in the United States. The two activities of education and practice reflect his belief in their critical interdependence, between theory and professional actualization as a basis for intentionality, creativity and knowledge.
Gray taught architectural design studios, architectural theory, technology and drawing courses in his tenure at Syracuse University School of Architecture from 1974-2007, directed study abroad courses in England and Italy as well heading the Undergraduate and Graduate programs.
Gray attended the Architectural Association in London and SUNY Buffalo. He worked in a variety of practices in London before coming to the U.S. and worked with Bill Slivers in Syracuse before opening his own practice. Gray left academia in 2007 to join Ballinger in Philadelphia as a project designer, retiring in 2015. He continues to pursue his interests in photography, painting and some writing, as well as participating in architectural design reviews.
