Finding the Place of Architecture in the Landscape: Book Launch w/ Peter Gisolfi
Event Date 15/04/2009
Location New York 
Country United States 
Description In his new book Finding the Place of Architecture in the Landscape, Peter Gisolfi asserts that landscape, be it “natural,” “vernacular,” or “designed,” is the basis for all architectural endeavors. The book examines 40 of his firm’s projects, large and small, with site plans, building plans, renderings, and photographs. Unlike traditional monographs which are organized by project types, Mr. Gisolfi has chosen to organize the book by settings, based on the types of landscapes encountered. Peter Gisolfi’s lecture will explain these, illustrating them with examples. In addition, he will discuss recent sustainable projects based on the same ideas.

Peter Gisolfi is an architect, landscape architect, and teacher whose built work reconciles the influences of context and program. In 1976, in Hastings-on=Hudson, NY, Mr. Gisolfi founded Peter Gisolfi Associates, a firm of architects, landscape architects, and interior architects where he currently serves as principal-in-charge of design. He is also a Professor of Architecture and Landscape Architecture at the City University of New York, where he is Chairman of the School of Architecture, Urban Design and Landscape Architecture. He was previously an Adjunct Associate Professor of Architecture at Columbia University for 12 years.
