Matthew Pitzer, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP BD+C

Matt Pitzer joined PDT Architects in 2016 after spending almost fifteen years in Boston as a designer specializing in higher education and preservation of prominent historic structures.

He is an adept project manager with excellent organizational and planning skills and a personal commitment to design that confers broad social benefits. Most recently, he completed the design of the new Kate Furbish Elementary School, which will be built at the site of the former Jordan Acres School in Brunswick, Maine. Matt was also project manager and lead designer for the conversion of the Portland Press Herald headquarters, converting their existing press hall to their news room.
