Justin Moore

Justin Garrett Moore ‘04 MARCH MSAUD is an Adjunct Associate Professor of Architecture in Columbia GSAPP’s urban design program. He is a transdisciplinary designer and urbanist and is the executive director of the New York City Public Design Commission. He has extensive design and planning experience—from large-scale urban systems, policies, and projects to grassroots and community-focused planning, design, and arts initiatives. At the Public Design Commission, his work is focused on prioritizing the quality and excellence of the public realm, and fostering accessibility, diversity, and inclusion in the City’s public buildings, spaces, and art.

In his fifteen-year career in public service, Justin has led several complex planning and design projects, including the Greenpoint and Williamsburg Waterfront, Hunter’s Point South, and the Brooklyn Cultural District. His work spans housing and community development, place and open space design, historic preservation, public art and monuments, and civic engagement and participation. He is also the co-founder of Urban Patch—a family-run social enterprise focused on sustainable design and development projects in the United States and Rwanda.

Justin holds a Bachelor of Design from the University of Florida and a Master of Architecture and an M.S. in Architecture and Urban Design from Columbia University. He has also taught at Morgan State University, Tuskegee University, and the Yale School of Architecture. His professional affiliations include the American Planning Association’s AICP Commission, the National Organization of Minority Architects, and the Urban Design Forum. He is one of the founding board members of the Black urbanist collective BlackSpace and serves on the boards of ioby.org, the Youth Design Center, and on advisory boards for the Van Alen Institute, MoMA, and Dumbarton Oaks.
