FREDERICK FISHER AND PARTNERS
Joseph Coriaty, FAIA, is Managing Partner of Frederick Fisher and Partners, where he has worked for over three decades. Influenced by his hometown of Detroit, MI, he studied architecture at the University of Detroit in 1974, and then went on to work in manufacturing spaces where he detailed and designed parts for machinery and tools. These experiences informed his passion for the process of making, and the primacy of human interaction with the built and urban environment. Informed by his hometown’s spirit of ingenuity and a wide understanding of pioneering developments in sustainability and resiliency, Coriaty has led FF&P’s design team that completed the world’s largest municipal building that fulfills the requirements of Living Building Challenge certification. Additional FF&P projects where Coriaty has overseen design include Annenberg Community Beach House, Crossroads School of Art and Science, Iovine and Young Hall at University of Southern California and the renovation of Princeton University Firestone Library. Coriaty was honored as a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects in 2018, and lectures at the University of Southern California, UCLA, Woodbury University, and the University of Detroit.
