Elijah Huge

Elijah Huge is an architect whose current scholarly project, “Saving the City: Entries from an Encyclopedia of Calamity-mollifying Devices for the Modern Metropolis,” is a study of the rise and proliferation of architectural emergency devices. His writing and design work have been featured in Praxis, Thresholds, Perspecta, Bracket, Architectural Record, Landscape Architecture, Dwell, JAE, and Competitions.  His design work includes commissions for private clients as well as award-winning competition entries for the High Line (New York, NY), the Bourne Bridge|Park (Bourne, MA), and the Tangshan Earthquake Memorial (Tangshan, China).

Prior to arriving at Wesleyan, Elijah Huge worked in the office of Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects as a senior designer and for Behnisch and Partner in Stuttgart, Germany. A graduate of the Yale School of Architecture, he received the AIA Henry Adams Medal and was editor of Perspecta 35: Building Codes. At Wesleyan University, Professor Huge leads the North Studio, which operates as both a locus for architectural design education within the context of the university's liberal arts curriculum and a laboratory for design research and fabrication.
