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.
