||Guy Peterson, FAIA Lecture & Reception - Thursday, March 27
Guest Lecturer: Guy Peterson, FAIA
Office for Architecture, Inc.
President & Principal Architect
A modernist in his approach, the language of his architecture is honesty and simplicity. His work is poetic, human, evokes emotion, and comes from the heart. Through his use of color, indigenous materials, light and shadow, he has derived an aesthetic that results in a clean, sustainable and delightful architecture.
Guy W. Peterson, FAIA, is in his 34th year of private practice and has received nearly 70 design awards and honors for his work including 49 design awards from the American Institute of Architects. The springboard for his work has been the regional modernism of the “Sarasota School of Architecture," a recognized movement in architecture. The “Sarasota School” blended the cultural, vernacular and tropical influences of traditional South Florida architecture with the modernist philosophies of the Bauhaus and the International Style. Guy Peterson has derived a softened Bauhaus aesthetic, which results in a clear, sustainable and delightful architecture. He achieves this delight by orchestrating a sequencing of spaces that hold one’s interest through a processof discovery. His commitment to advancing thecause and public value of architecture derives from a long standing belief in “essentialism”, a concept which demands design by analysis and reduction rather than by stylistic imitation and embellishment.
