Adjunct Associate Professor Trevor Harrison AIA, LEED AP is new to the RIT faculty this year. As a graduate of the School of Architecture at the University of Buffalo Trevor was drawn toward the practicing professors that he learned under, deciding that this was a path he wanted to follow at some point in his career. As an instructor Trevor brings his professional practice experience to the studio environment; blending a supportive, “personal development” approach to learning about the creative process and the practice of architecture.
As Managing Partner of HBT Architects, a seventeen person firm in Pittsford, NY, Trevor practices the philosophy that all members of a team should be strong individuals who recognize that their greater strength comes through working closely with others. This approach has led his firm to be recognized as a national “Circle of Excellence” company and also as one of the Rochester region’s top performing companies.
Trevor is licensed in seven states through the NCARB Broadly Experienced Architect program for which he was featured in the quarterly NCARB magazine. His design services for both hospitality and universities have allowed him to explore his focus on contextual design and adaptive resuse in a variety of regions. Notable area projects completed by his firm include works at RIT such as the NTID Student Development Center, Renovations to the Wallace Center, The Vignelli Archives and Booth Gallery at the School of American Crafts and the recently completed Rosica Hall. Currently, Trevor and his team are working on the design for the Center for Health Science and Technology at RIT.
