James Ramsey is the principal of RAAD, a high-end design firm based in New York City. Ramsey’s experience in design began as an undergraduate at Yale University, where he won a Bates Fellowship to study cathedral design in Europe. He then went to work as a satellite engineer for NASA, where he was a part of the team that created the Pluto Fast Flyby and the Cassini satellites. After his time at NASA, Ramsey worked as an architect at DMSAS in Washington, DC and at Penny Yates Architects in New York. He has taught design at the Parsons School of Design and is engaged in active research on the Lowline’s “remote skylight” technology.
