How Fogarty Finger Built a Thriving Architecture Firm

Prior to founding Fogarty Finger in 2003, Chris Fogarty was a Senior Designer at Skidmore Owings and Merrill Architects (SOM) in the London, Washington DC and New York Offices, playing a significant role in national and international competitions and completing many award-winning office and mixed-use buildings. After studying architecture at University College's Bartlett in London, he received his Masters in Architecture from University of Edinburgh. 

Chris' current and recently completed projects include the Dime Bank Building in Brooklyn: a new 23-story tower merging retail, commercial, and multifamily residential units adjoining the existing Dime Bank; the Jackson: a 56-unit condominium building near MoMA PS1 in Long Island City and The Lanes: the first co-living micro suites project in NYC.

His ability to work across many building types is underpinned by the intellectual rigor with which every project is approached. Each design is seamlessly integrated into contexts with meticulous thought to the surrounding space and visual importance.
