Vonn Weisenberger is a designer and social justice advocate who combines his expertise and enthusiasm with a deep appreciation for the importance of working collaboratively. He works across the fields of planning, architecture, and design with one focus — improving and celebrating public life for all.
I utilize my wide range of skills to impact all areas of design — from concept to construction — at multidisciplinary firms including SKOLNICK, Rockwell Group, and Pure+Applied. I have made significant contributions to a range of projects in the areas of planning, architecture and interiors, exhibitions, furniture and products, signage and wayfinding, and print and digital graphics.
My focus is on civic and cultural projects for the public good, practicing design that empowers diverse audiences to explore vital stories, create and activate meaningful spaces, and enrich community life. I combine my expertise and enthusiasm with a deep appreciation for the importance of working collaboratively, and developing project- and site-specific solutions.
I live in Brooklyn, NY and am working as an intermediate designer at SKOLNICK Architecture + Design Partnership. I work with both the firm's architecture and exhibit teams and am also a member of the DEI planning committee. I'm also a mentor for architecture students at Penn State, part of the Social and Environmental Justice working group for US Architects Declare, and working with the Design Advocates.
I have worked with many notable cultural and civic institutions including Columbia University, Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum, London Children’s Museum, New York University, The Barnes Foundation, The Brooklyn Historical Society, The Library of Congress, The Metropolitan Transportation Authority, The Museum of the City of New York, The National Building Museum, and The New York Public Library.
