George R. Metzger



George Metzger understands that good design benefits all and his lifelong commitment to architecture informing social ideals has made a difference. By raising the level of architectural and urban design for K-12 educational facilities, his public architecture creates spaces that promote, enhance, and support community. For George, community ownership and engagement in the process and the outcome of design are the best measure of a project’s success. His design for the award-winning Baldwin School in Cambridge, a 70,000 sf community school on a half-acre site in a dense urban neighborhood, established a model for both small schools and successful civic engagement in an outspoken community known for the projects that do not get built. George has been a leader at HMFH for more than 35 years. He is Past President of the Boston Society of Architects (BSA) and in his many roles at the BSA, has been instrumental in shaping legislation for the built environment in Massachusetts.
