ICAA-NW RAINIER CLUB LECTURE SERIES: part one

PETER PENNOYER, FAIA

TRADITION & MODERNISM IN ARCHITECTURE TODAY:  For twenty-five years, Peter Pennoyer and his partners have grounded their work on architectural practices of the past as the basis for creating forward-thinking designs. The common thread in their varied body of work, which includes residential, commercial and institutional commissions, is their conviction that architecture must be relevant, appropriate and beautiful. Join Peter as he examines how PPA reimagines architectural traditions for contemporary living, sharing photographs from some of their more important - and challenging - projects, showcasing a variety of architectural styles, and offering advice on the tools that are essential for designing houses today.

PETER PENNOYER is the founding partner of Peter Pennoyer Architects, the New York-based architecture and design firm.  He is a member of Architectural Digest's AD100, a trustee of the Morgan Library & Museum, and co-author, with Anne Walker, of five books on early twentieth-century American architectural practices.  He is also the author of A House in the Country, written with his wife, interior designer Katie Ridder.  Peter has served as chairman and board member of the Institute of Classical Architecture & Art and in 2014 he was elected to the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects. Peter is an adjunct professor in the department of Architecture & Urban Studies at New York University and a recipient of the ICAA Arthur Ross Award.  Current projects include a house for the artist, Jeff Koons, and a new house in Ohio influenced by Czech Cubism.  His firm's work has been published in newspapers, books and periodicals, including Architectural Digest, Elle Décor, Town & Country, Galerie, Veranda, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and many others.

ICAA-NW RAINIER CLUB LECTURE SERIES: part two

KATIE RIDDER, DESIGNER

As Architectural Digest observed, Katie Ridder's "interiors are a richly layered extravaganza of exotic patterns and bright hues, peppered with venerable antiques."  Katie'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 leading, 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 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 BeautifulArchitectural 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.
