Sean Canty


Sean Canty is the founder of SSC, an architecture practice based in Cambridge, MA. The studio is interested in choreographing unconventional relationships between spaces of contemplation and collective gathering. The work of the studio engages formal combination and juxtaposition at a variety of scales—from objects to interiors—and explores a range of programmatic types from domestic environments to cultural spaces. Canty is also one of the founding principals of Office III (OIII), an experimental architectural collective that spans New York, San Francisco, and Cambridge. Selected as a finalist for the 2016 MoMA PS1 Young Architects competition, OIII has completed a Welcome Center for Governors Island and exhibited work at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Canty is an Assistant Professor of Architecture at Harvard University Graduate School of Design and the recipient of the 2020 Richard Rogers Fellowship.
