Joseph Kusnick joins Shaker Museum board

Joseph Kusnick

OLD CHATHAM — Joseph Kusnick, founding Principal of A E Greyson & Company, a high end residential construction company in New York City, was unanimously elected to the Shaker Museum’s Board of Trustees on Feb. 8.

Kusnick has more than 35 years of combined architectural and residential construction experience. His completed projects include the Barry residence for Annabelle Selldorf, the Gymnasium residence for Charles Gwathmey, and a private residence for Richard Meier at the Perry Street Towers.

Born and raised in Florida, Kusnick received his Bachelor of Architecture degree with a focus on New Urbanism and obtained his architectural license in New York State. Prior to founding A E Greyson, Kusnick worked in the architectural offices of Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates, Ulrich Franzen, and others. He and his spouse Tracy Brown, an interior designer, recently purchased a home in Old Chatham.

Referring to the Shakers’ belief in striving for perfection and devotion in everything they did as well as their belief that God dwelt in the details, Kusnick said, “As an architect and builder of bespoke residences, the Shaker ethic is as relevant today as it was then and served as the antecedent for great architects such as Adolf Loos, Mies van der Rohe, and others.”
