  • Located in New York City since 1972, Peter L. Gluck and Partners is known for the integrity of their designs and sensitivity to the relationship between architectural form and context. Rather than specializing in a particular building type or specific architectural style, the firm provides appropriate responses to often difficult and conflicting requirements. The firm has designed buildings throughout the United States, ranging from houses, schools, religious buildings, and community centers to hotels, corporate interiors, university buildings, and historic restorations. Many projects have won national and international design awards and have been published in various architectural journals and books including Architectural Record, Progressive Architecture, Architectural Digest, House and Garden, The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, Global Architecture, A+U, World Residential Design, and L’architecture d’aujord’hui. This extensive overview of the firm’s practice includes architectural drawings, digital and physical models, and photographs of both finished and in progress projects.

  • Joseph Giovannini is an author, critic, and the principal of Giovannini Associates, a New York City design firm. A Pulitzer Prize nominee, he has written as an architecture critic for The Los Angeles Herald Examiner and The New York Times, and has contributed to The New Yorker, Esquire, Vanity Fair, Progressive Architecture, Architectural Record, and Architectural Digest, among other publications. Mr. Giovannini has received numerous writing awards and has lectured widely. He earned his B.A. in English Literature at Yale, M.A. in French Language and Literature through studies at the Sorbonne, and M.Arch at the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University. He has taught at Harvard University, Columbia University, and at the University of Southern California School of Architecture.

    Peter Gluck received a B.A. and M.Arch from Yale University. He spent 2 years in Tokyo designing large projects for a leading Japanese construction consortium. This experience influenced Gluck’s later work both in his knowledge of Japan’s traditional aesthetics and of its efficient modern methods of integrated construction and design. His firm, Peter L. Gluck and Partners in New York, has been designing and building throughout the country since 1972, joined in 1992 by AR/CS, a construction-management firm, established to build the firm’s designs.
    Exhibitions of Gluck’s award-winning work have been held in the U.S. and Japan, and he is widely published in architectural journals around the world. He has taught at Columbia and Yale schools of architecture, and curated exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art and the Milan Triennale.
