For Todd Poisson, great design is beautiful, inventive, buildable, and responsible. Uniquely, Todd is both a big picture thinker and a stickler for details, with natural talent for building consensus. By collaborating closely with colleagues and clients, he consistently achieves multi-faceted success on his projects, for today’s beneficiaries and generations to come.
An exemplary leader of complex teams, Todd’s current work is mainly comprised of ground-up buildings in New York City. Particularly notable are The Jefferson and the Citizen Manhattan condominiums, as well as 529 Broadway, a six-story retail building in the Soho Cast Iron District, whose façade reflects its context with a gradient from the punched windows of one historic neighbor to the expansive glazing of the next. Todd’s interest in the tools of architectural practice, as well as his commitment to excellence in project delivery, result in his teams being at the forefront of today’s design research, technologies, and processes.
In addition to architecture, Todd has a contagious passion for sports. He is an active volunteer with the American Youth Soccer Organization and a former coach and referee of regional leagues. In addition, Todd is a lecturer and interviewer for Cornell University’s College of Architecture, Art, and Planning, of which he is an alumnus.
