About John Gidding

Growing up in a family of artists in Istanbul, Turkey, John Gidding’s first design influences were a love of traditional decorative arts and ornamental techniques.  He then completed the modern half of his education with a Bachelor of Arts from Yale University and a Master’s degree in Architecture from Harvard’s Graduate School of Design.  John has enjoyed combining the best part of both aesthetic approaches with projects all around the world, ranging from residential and institutional architecture to landscape and urban design.  Some of his favorite projects include working on the Brooklyn Bridge Park and Union Square with award-winning landscape architecture firm Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates.  He’s also worked on the campus plans for Carnegie Mellon University, Yale University, and Cornell University, and a pavilion for the 2008 Olympics in Beijing.  John was working as a runway model for Armani and Gucci while getting his graduate degree when a scout called him in for a show casting, starting off a parallel career in television as a design expert on ABC, NBC, CNN, HGTV, Logo, and most recently on TLC as one of the new designers on the relaunch of “Trading Spaces”.  John is a social media influencer and is always looking for new freelance collaborations with creators and makers while he travels the country as a keynote speaker and emcee.
