ARTalk: Architectural Excellence & a Diverse Portfolio with Centerbrook Architects
Sunday October 28, 2018
2:00 PM until 3:30 PM
Nationally renowned architectural firm Centerbrook Architects & Planners has received 380 awards for design excellence since it was founded in 1975, including the National AIA Firm Award, the highest honor the American Institute of Architects confers. Centerbrook defines architectural excellence, in part, as to how well buildings perform for the people who use them. Centerbrook aims to sensitively relate new or renovated buildings to their surroundings to create a sense of place. In this ARTalk, principals Jefferson B. Riley (left) and Todd E. Andrews will highlight Centerbrook’s design approach through examples of its diverse portfolio.
A co-founder of Centerbrook, Jefferson B. Riley (left) has designed numerous award-winning buildings, including the Quinnipiac University School of Law Center, the Wriston Art Center at Lawrence University, the Hotchkiss School Music Center and its Biomass Power Plant, and the Ocean House in Watch Hill, R.I. Notably, Riley has designed every building on Quinnipiac’s three campuses since 1978. Todd E. Andrews, (right) Centerbrook’s newest principal, has designed buildings that support and enhance education, learning, research, worship, and community in his 20 years of practice with the firm. A principal focus has been his work on multiple projects at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. This presentation is co-sponsored by the Library and the Ridgefield Guild of Artists.PVA
