The San Diego based architect Jonathan Segal has been responsible for the design and development of over 300 medium to high-density urban residential, mixed use, and live/work units.
Is there something that connects all your projects?
Urban design and strong individual planning notions and ideas for each project are the connecting aspects. I believe that the most important design elements are proportion, harmony, rhythm, beauty and purity.
What would be your dream project?
I would have loved to see my q building built in the meat packing district in New York. So I guess a small project in NYC or Brookland.
What’s your advice to the architecture students?
Don’t grow up to be poor architects. Work for a few years and learn the business of putting a good set of drawings together and then do your own work for yourself not clients.
