Great Spaces takes extraordinary and ordinary spaces to the limit and beyond. Full of stunts, challenges, celebrity appearances and features, "Great Spaces" is far more than a design show; you'll find no boring talk about Doric columns or impenetrable conversations about blueprints here. It's the passion of hosts that make it more than just a design program.


















Delaine is the founder of Great Spaces, as well as a designer based in the New York Area. He created Great Spaces in the Spring of 2008 as a way to catalog his search for new ways to show spaces to the world through entertainment, humor, and intellectually conscious content. Educated at Rutgers University and NYIT. With office experience from Dattner Architects, Tronic Studio and on site experience with Isaac/ Associates, Jimmy Dumas Architecture, and UAI, he loves everything about design. He is currently pursuing a design practice with the interests of social media, video and film. Being taught by professors from Columbia GSAPP, Harvard GSD and esteemed architects such as Elizabeth Terragini which so far has been good for his obsession with traveling to various countries to share spaces you.
