Intro by Marcelo Spina

Margaret Griffin, A.I.A. is a co-founder (with John Enright) and principal of the Los Angeles-based Griffin Enright Architects, a collaborative practice that yields creative, forward-thinking designs. Her firm's work combines innovation and experimentation with a desire to explore cultural complexities relative to the built environment.

Griffin Enright Architects' work has been extensively published locally, nationally and internationally, and has received dozens of awards for design excellence including, local, state and national AIA Awards and The American Architecture Award from the Chicago Athenaeum.

In addition to guiding an emergent practice, Griffin is an educator with more than eighteen years of experience teaching at universities including Syracuse University, USC, and UCLA. She is currently on the design and technology faculty at SCI-Arc.

Griffin earned a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Syracuse University and a Master of Architecture degree from the University of Virginia. She was granted a fellowship from the American Academy in Rome to investigate the relationship between urbanform and landforms, a subject she continues to examine in her architectural practice. Griffin also expands her practice through community service, both as treasurer on the board of the Los Angeles Forum for Architecture and Urban Design and as a director on the board of directors for the Los Angeles AIA. She has also recently been appointed to the City of Santa Monica’s Architecural Review board.
