George Thrush

George Thrush is Professor Architecture at Northeastern University in Boston, MA, as well as a co-founder of Building Conversation. He was the founding Director of the School of Architecture and led it for 25 years before stepping down in 2015. His work has focused on transportation, urban design, and civic image in an increasingly privatized economic arena. Helping non-professional audiences to better understand design choices is what led him to work with Building Conversation Founder and CEO Terrence Masson on using augmented reality to engage these audiences.


Thrush is among the primary authors of a comprehensive regional transportation and development proposal for the Boston metropolitan area called The New Urban Ring, and he has written extensively in the popular press on architecture and real estate development. He received his B.Arch. from the University of Tennessee in 1984, and his M. Arch. from Harvard University in 1988. In 2005, his work was celebrated with his entry into the American Institute of Architects College of Fellows.
