A warm Global Site Plans welcome to Jordan Meerdink, the newest blogger to The Grid. Every other Thursday, starting in May, you can find Jordan Meerdink blogging about his passion for untraditional architectural designs ranging from Shinto Shrines to shipping container architecture, in addition to matters of sustainable transportation.
Jordan Meerdink is a graduate of the The Ohio State University. He holds a B.S. in Architecture with a minor in studio art. Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Jordan inherited an early interest in mechanics and construction from his grandfather, a developer who was one of the early practitioners of prefabricated housing, and his father who is a retired store owner and highly capable DIYer. Currently living in Columbus, Ohio, he continues to produce art and furniture with a focus on smart, ecologically responsible design. Jordan has a special concern for design that serves people outside the traditional clientele of architects and a unique interest in architecture that deviates from the beaten path; ranging from baroque churches to dismantled bomb shelters.
