Jacob Reidel

Jacob Reidel’s work examines architectural practice and seeks to redesign the way architecture is practiced today. Throughout his career he has tested the ways designers can shape space, experience, and community by embracing roles and responsibilities at times outside the traditionally-defined position of the architect.

He was most recently a Senior Director at Saltmine, a technology startup creating a platform of programming, design, and space management tools, and previously he was a Senior Director at WeWork.

Since 2019, he has been a member of the faculty of the Harvard Graduate School of Design, where his teaching and research focuses on practice and the architectural workplace.

Jacob is co-founder and editor of CLOG, and among many other publications he co-edited the OfficeUS Manual. He is a licensed architect in New York and an alum of Ennead Architects and REX.
