ICAA-NW RAINIER CLUB LECTURE SERIES: part one

PETER PENNOYER, FAIA

PETER PENNOYER is the principal partner of Peter Pennoyer Architects, a New York based, 60 member firm with commissions worldwide. He has made the study of history a generating force in his work and believes that by mastering the interpretation of architectural history, he and his colleagues design projects that are both modern and classical.  With current projects from Hong Kong to Florida to New York's Upper East Side the Pennoyer practice is extending its reach and range to include institutional and commercial buildings.

Peter has co-authored five books on American architectural history and is an adjunct professor in the Architecture and Urban Studies Program at New York University.  He uses his scholarship and knowledge of New York City to advocate for positions and designs he feels reflect the values of his firm.  He actively participates in the civic dialogue among neighborhood groups, professionals, and government agencies, and takes positions for architecture that is contextual and respectful to the fabric of the city.

Peter is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects and is on Architectural Digest's AD100 list of top architects and designers.  He is President of the Whiting Foundation, a board member of The Morgan Library & Museum, a national peer reviewer for the General Services Administration, and is the chairman of the Fellowship Committee of the Sir John Soane's Museum Foundation.  Peter was elected to the General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen in 2016 and his recent awards include the 2017 Albert Simons Medal of Excellence from the College of Charleston and the 2017 Arthur Ross Award for architecture.

Peter and his wife, the interior designer Katie Ridder, have three children and live in Bronxville, New York.

ICAA-NW RAINIER CLUB LECTURE SERIES: part two

KATIE RIDDER, DESIGNER

As New York Home observed, KATIE RIDDER'S "trademark is the ease with which she bridges cultures and continents, high and low art, periods and styles.  Yet to call her work eclectic is to miss the point, for while it reflects diverse influences, it is recognizably the product of a single sensibility - one with a distinctive take on color, texture, proportion and scale."

Katie Ridder's extraordinary dexterity with palettes of primary and secondary colors, her playful approach to mixing antiques and modern pieces, and her eye for unusual decorative accents have all established her as a nonpareil, and singular, figure in the world of interior design.

Clients from Switzerland to Virginia have commissioned her to design the interiors of spaces as varied and unique as Japanese pavilions, Palm Beach estates, Park Avenue apartments, and downtown lofts.  Katie has expanded her reach by creating a wallpaper and fabric line, represented at Holland & Sherry showrooms throughout the country, as well as in Europe.

Ridder's work has been published in Architectural Digest, The New York Times, Elle Décor, Town & Country, House & Garden, Domino, and House Beautiful.  Architectural Digest, Elle Décor and House Beautiful have featured her projects on their covers.  She has appeared on the "Top 100" list of designers for House Beautiful, Elle Décor, and New York Magazine.  Katie's first book Rooms was published by Vendome Press in 2011 and is in its third printing.  A House in the Country - Ridder's second book, co-authored with her husband, architect Peter Pennoyer - has graced three Amazon best-sellers lists.

Katie's design work extends to her involvement with many groups.  She is currently a member of the Friends of Horticulture at Wave Hill and the Horticultural Committee at the New York Botanical Garden.
