Jay Valgora, AIA

    Jay Valgora’s practice, STUDIO V Architecture, is dedicated to the reinvention of the contemporary city. The Studio addresses multiple themes in its designs including creating a new architecture of transformative edges and sustainable communities, radical adaptive reuse, and experiments in innovative structures and fabrication.

    Mr. Valgora has thirty years of experience in multiple disciplines including architecture, urban design, and industrial design. Mr. Valgora earned a Master of Architecture from Harvard, a Bachelor of Architecture from Cornell University and was a Fulbright Fellow to the United Kingdom.

    Mr. Valgora was born in Buffalo where he was inspired to become an architect by the grain elevators and steel mills where his father worked and the loss inflicted by industrial decay. He practiced in London, Boston, San Francisco, and Toronto, and considers these great cities as practice for his eventual embrace of New York City, where he lives with his wife and sons.
