Architect Henry Myerberg talks about learning from architecture with a focus on visibility, flexibility and density of design.

Henry Myerberg, FAIA is the founder of HMA2 architects, initiated in 1986. He has built a distinguished career focused on re-imagining educational settings as active learning and community centers.

His work has been featured in publications such as Architectural Record, Library Journal, and The New York Times. Myerberg is also a frequent speaker and panelist at national conferences, including workshops on campus and library planning for the Andrew Mellon Foundation.

Myerberg received a Master of Architecture degree from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design and has been an adjunct professor at Columbia University as well as a lecturer at Harvard University.
