Teo Quintana is a Design Team Member in Studio Gang’s New York office working on cultural, residential, and public projects. Raised on the formerly mean streets of Brooklyn, he gravitated to architecture and design at an early age. As a student of the backlots, alleys, and rooftops of his childhood, he has a deep appreciation for the endless variety of uses supported by even the most unassuming urban spaces.
Teo is trained in both architecture and urban design, studying at Princeton University before earning his Master’s degree at the Yale School of Architecture, and has practiced in New York for the past three years. His experience ranges from research and publications to building and public space design. He was drawn to Studio Gang for its clarity of vision, optimism, and sense of purpose in shaping a more ecological and equitable future through architecture. He enjoys collaborating with fields including landscape architecture, interaction and public space design, and graphic design.
Outside of the Studio, Teo enjoys running, writing, hiking, road trips, and train rides. His favorite landscapes include Vermont’s Green Mountains, Teton National Park, and pine forests. His favorite bodies of water include Lakes Monona and Mendota, the Bay of Fundey, and the Gowanus Canal.
