About Stephen Chrisman
The son of an architect, Stephen spent much of his Oregon childhood drawing and visiting construction sites and historical buildings. He received his Bachelor of Architecture from the Oregon School of Design, and after graduation, accepted a scholarship to study traditional and civic buildings as part of the Prince of Wales’ Institute of Architecture Summer School. Following working for Allan Greenberg in Washington D.C., he received his Master of Architecture from the University of Notre Dame and joined Ferguson & Shamamian in 1995. Since then, Stephen has led the teams for three of the firm’s Stanford White Awards, three Palladio Prizes, and a Mizner Award, among other recognitions. Stephen is a long-standing Fellow and Instructor of the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art, where he regularly teaches and lectures about classical architecture, the study of design precedent, and measured and analytical drawing. He also serves on the Institute’s National Education Committee. Stephen and his wife live in Maplewood, New Jersey, where they raised their two sons, one studying philosophy and one following in the family’s footsteps as an architect.
