AIA, Kiss + Cathcart Architects
Gregory Kiss has been working to advance the art and technology of environmentally responsible architecture for over 25 years. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts from Yale University and a Master of Architecture from Columbia University, he founded Kiss + Cathcart Architects in 1983. He was also a founder and president of the not-for-profit organization Native American Photovoltaics, bringing solar power to the Navajo Reservation. Mr. Kiss has designed many ground-breaking high-performance building projects around the world. His research into the functional and aesthetic improvement of photovoltaics has generated new products and building systems. He has authored technical manuals for the Department of Energy, and lectures frequently on advances in solar technologies and their potential for integration in architectural design. Recently he has been developing the building of integrated biological systems for energy, habitat, and aesthetic benefits. He has extended this work to architecturally integrated food production.
