Craig Steely is a California- and Hawaii-based architect. His buildings have been described as true and unique hybrids of these two environments. They embrace the realities of the environment and our separation/connection to it over the subjugation of it, all the while focusing on developing a singular architecture rooted in its context. Active projects include work in Hawaii, Mexico, as well as several along the coast of California—from Sea Ranch to San Francisco to Big Sur.
He received his architecture degree from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. He has lectured at the University of Hawaii, the University of California at Berkeley, Cal Poly, and at many conferences, including the Monterey Design Conference. His work has been awarded recognition by the American Institute of Architects and has been published widely in books and periodicals.
