Lecture: Peter Bohlin
'Nature of Circumstance'Monday 04 October, 6:00pm
Carnegie Museum of Art Theater
4400 Forbes Ave, Pittsburgh
Peter is one of the founding principals of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, which began practice as Bohlin and Powell in 1965. The firm’s success, and the professional recognition it has attained, are in large measure attributable to his design insights and unflagging dedication to setting the highest standards for all design work produced by the firm. Over the course of his long career, Bohlin has designed superlative rural houses, nature centers as well as excellent urban buildings. The key to success for both building types is their contextual use of materials. His leadership and inspiration have established a culture of thoughtful, thorough design thinking throughout the practice, and he remains keenly interested in both broad conceptual thinking and detail expression. In 2010, the American Institute of Architects awarded Peter the Gold Medal, the highest individual award given for lifetime achievement within the profession.
Reception to follow, sponsored by Bohlin Cywinski Jackson.
