Elliot Glassman is an award-winning architect specializing in environmentally conscious design. He holds a Masters degree in sustainability from the Harvard Graduate School of Design. During the course of eight years of professional experience, Elliot has worked on several large-scale projects worldwide, each requiring a particular set of programmatic and climate appropriate design responses. 

Elliot's work focuses on creating high performance buildings and improving the quality of the urban environment. This leads him to consider issues of energy efficiency, water consumption, access to daylight, indoor and outdoor air quality, and walkability and transportation networks. 

Elliot believes that both the built and natural environments greatly influence human health and social well-being.  Good, ecologically-minded design can be used to make cities more livable, conserve resources, and restore natural ecologies. There is a unique synergy between these environmental goals and the cultural and economic life of cities which is the central generator of the FutureNYC project.
