Jeffri Jacobe

Chicago, IL

At a young age, Jeffri knew he wanted to be an architect after his father studied it in the Philippines. But what he learned in college would change his understanding of architecture for the better, that architecture can be where you least expect it. He is motivated by the overlooked parts of world and revealing the unseen through drawings, images, and objects. When he’s not at home taming a zoo, Jeffri likes to learn new bass lines, share drinks on the boulevard, and wash his car. He holds both a Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies and a Master of Architecture from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Jacobi has 3 cats (Halo, Finn, and Elton), 2 ferrets (Appa and Toretto), a dog (Potter), and a tarantula (Neith).
