Peter Zellner, of the Venice-based firm Zellnerplus, will present a lecture this evening at SCI Arc titled "Practices & Projects". He is also a faculty member at the school where he co-coordinates the Future Initiatives postgraduate urban design program with David Bergman. Zellner has held visiting Professorships in Architecture at UC Berkeley, FIU, the University of Southern California, the Ecole Speciale d’Architecture in Paris and the Institut für Städtebau und Raumplanung (Institute for Urban Design & Urban Planning) at the University of Innsbruck, Austria.
Zellner's firm is unique in its combination of services—ranging from site analysis, space programming, and design to real estate analysis, facilities location strategies, and urban design. In 2010, Harper’s Bazaar included Zellner in its Editor’s Selection “Best of What’s New—Designers to Watch.” In January 2012, Zellner completed his first free-standing building, the Matthew Marks Los Angeles Gallery. Los Angeles Times architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne described the project as "one of the most conspicuous architectural debuts to appear in Southern California in a number of years" and named Zellner one of "10 Faces to Watch in 2012 in Dance, Theater, Architecture and Art."
The lecture is this Wednesday, September 26, at 7pm at the W.M. Keck Lecture Hall and will begin with an introduction by Eric Owen Moss.
