Jeffrey S Nesbit holds a Master of Architecture from the University of Pennsylvania and received his first Master of Architecture and Bachelor of Science in Architecture from Texas Tech University. Currently his work investigates urban organizational strategies based upon the generation and evolution of topological behaviors. In particular, his research identifies evidences of self-generative heterotopias in East Asian megalopolis in order to inform innovative design criteria for future urban speculation.

During his thesis and post-professional studies Nesbit focused his architectural inquiry into issues of urbanism and the constructed landscapes, including the post-industrial landscapes of the Imperial Sugar Factory in Sugar Land, TX and Hunter’s Point South in Queens, New York. Immediately upon completion with graduate school, Nesbit co-led a design team within the international design studio in Seoul, Korea for Heerim Architects. His competition submittal for the Central National Infrastructural Agency in Abu Dhabi, collaborated with J. Arndt, received first place and 'contract awarded'. In the fall of 2009 he returned to native Texas, working as a designer for Kell Muñoz Architects in San Antonio. Additionally, he taught at Texas Tech University for five years along with co-directing an architecture studio abroad in Seoul, South Korea (2011-2015) and directing an urban design studio in Shanghai, China (2014, 2015). Nesbit has received various honors for his teaching, works and research and has been selected for multiple publications, including gallery exhibitions in Texas, Philadelphia, New York City, Beijing, and Seoul. In addition to founding the experimental architecture group Haecceitas Studio in 2010, he teaches various design studios and seminars on theory in architecture and urbanism.
