As a generalist architect, Peter’s interests lie in leading teams that intelligently conceive, creatively develop and meticulously execute challenging projects. While Peter’s approach to design is highly analytical, it is also informed by years of teaching students how to visualize and represent complex three-dimensional spaces.
Peter earned his undergraduate degree in Architecture from the University of Notre Dame in 1990, where he studied urban design in Rome and Chicago. Following several years of working in Italy, he pursued graduate studies at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Design, where he earned his M.Arch in 1996. From 1998 to 2005, Peter was an Associate at KieranTimberlake in Philadelphia and completed major projects at Yale University, Cornell University and Middlebury College. He was the Associate-in-Charge of the Davenport College Renovation at Yale, which won an AIA Honor Award for Interior Architecture. Peter taught courses in drawing and architectural design at the University of Pennsylvania from 1998 to 2005.
At Payette, Peter has been Project Architect for some of the firm’s most recently recognized work, including the acclaimed Milken Institute School of Public Health at George Washington University, one of thirteen projects to win both an AIA Institute Honor Award and a COTE Top Ten Award.
