Jeffrey Mansfield is a design director at MASS Design Group, whose work explores the relationships between architecture, landscape, and power. Currently, he is researching how Deaf schools and other Deaf Spaces emerged as sites of cultural resistance in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, initiated with a grant from the Graham Foundation and the John W. Kluge Fellowship at the Library of Congress. Jeffrey also co-edited MASS Design Group’s first monograph, Justice is Beauty (The Monacelli Press). Jeffrey’s work has been published in the Cooper Hewitt Design Journal, AD, Tacet and exhibited at MoMA PS1, Bergen Assembly, Sao Paulo Biennale, the Sharjah Biennial, and Tallinn Art Hall. Previously, Jeff has worked at the offices of Kennedy Violich Architecture (Boston), HHF Architects (Basel), and Parker Warburton Team Architecture (Dunedin, New Zealand). Jeffrey holds a Master of Architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design and an AB in Architecture from Princeton University. Jeffrey has been deaf since birth and attended a deaf school in Massachusetts, where his earliest intuitions about the relationship between aesthetics, power, and society emerged.
Jeffrey is also a three-time Deaflympian, winning gold with the USA Men's Deaflympic Ice Hockey Team in 2007 and 2019. He also played Varsity Ice Hockey for Princeton and was awarded the 2005 USA Hockey Disabled Player of the Year.
