CRAFT is a visionary studio of structural engineering whose uniquely talented team members are passionate about the pursuit of structural engineering and its positive impacts on architecture. Each member of CRAFT is trained in Architecture which allows us, as structural engineers, to more effectively communicate and collaborate with Architects and Artists as clients. At CRAFT, we understand the necessity for being open minded and creative thinkers, which ultimately leads to imaginative problem solving and innovative solutions in structural design. CRAFT caters to the architect who challenges traditional notions of engineering design and construction practices and seeks a new approach to project delivery.
CRAFT was founded in the Spring of 2010 by Nathaniel Stanton to more effectively address the desire among architects for an engineering consultant that is progressive and forward thinking but operates on a scale that engenders creativity and collaboration between disciplines. This pursuit builds on 20 years of experience in non-standard structural engineering consulting for projects with geometrical, analytical and material complexity. Most recently, Mr. Stanton led the Special Projects group within the New York office of Buro Happold Consulting Engineers. In addition to practice, Mr. Stanton has lectured at the University of Michigan, the Product Architecture Lab within the Mechanical Engineering Department at the Steven’s Institute of Technology and the Graduate Architecture Program at the Pratt Institute.
