Christopher Teeter is a licensed architect currently in Florida, Michigan, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. All architecture services are performed and offered under Christopher Teeter, R.A. for the respective listed states.
Metamechanics is a state of being, an approach to the designed and built environment. Chris first envisioned the term while writing a paper in 2001 on a kinetic piece of architecture by Santiago Calatrava. As metaphysics is to physics so is metamechanics to architecture. The Greek prefix “meta’ means beyond. Architecture and the city are machines with qualities beyond quantifiable justification. The architect can be a metamechanic if they care and consider the built environment beyond the standard requirements of laws and finance.
Chris taught 3D rendering and modeling, drafting, and construction drawings at Parsons the New School from 2010-2013.
Education: Bachelor of Architecture from University of Kansas (’02), Masters of Architecture from University of Pennsylvania (’07), studied (3) semesters in Germany at Technische Universitat Dortmund (’99-’00)
