john ciardullo, RA

John Ciardullo’s portfolio encompasses a body of work that spans nearly five decades. He designed and engineered projects ranging in scale, type and market. The strength of the firm’s work is based on John’s assertion that architecture is a humanistic art, the most social of all arts. In his words, "the work I've been doing all these years is about arriving at a solution to specific social issues."


He is distinguished by works that have positively impacted numerous communities, such as award-winning schools, recreational centers, libraries, parks, pools and various housing types.  He first grew interested in architecture during his time at LaGuardia High School of Music and Art in New York City.  He earned his Bachelor's of Civil Engineering at Bradley University and his Master of Architecture degree from Harvard Graduate School of Design. At Harvard, John became a Teaching Fellow in structural design.


While earning his degrees, John worked as a Structural Engineer with the French firm, Freyssinet Inc. where he specialized in pre-fabricated and pre-stressed concrete structures. As a post-graduate, John became a Project Engineer and Structural Designer at Weidlinger Associates where he had the opportunity to work with the likes of Walter Gropius, Josep Lluiz Sert, Pietro Belluschi and Eduardo Catalano. He also worked for Wiesenfeld & Leon Consulting Engineers as a Structural Designer for noted architects, such as Marcel Breuer.

John challenged and inspired us all to be better architects, to continue to explore and to strive for design excellence.  His architectural legacy is a testament to his unwavering vision and boldness as reflected in his work. This legacy will live on not only in the buildings he created but in each of us who he inspired and in the firm that he founded over 50 years ago bearing his name.
