Laura Hartman / Fernau & Hartman Architects

October 26, 2011 - 5:30pm

Laura Hartman was educated at Smith College, where she received a B.A. in Art, and at the University of California at Berkeley, where she received a Masters of Architecture in 1978. At UC Berkeley, she received a Branner Fellowship from the Architecture Department to travel in Europe. Before forming Fernau & Hartman Architects with Richard Fernau in 1980, she worked with Esherick, Homsey, Dodge, and Davis in San Francisco and with Dolf Schneibli e Associati, in Agno, Switzerland.

The work of Fernau & Hartman Architects has won numerous awards and has been published widely. In 1986 they were selected to participate in the “Emerging Voices” program at the Architecture League in New York. The firm has been profiled in a number publications including a substantial interview in GA Houses:64. Hartman frequently taught design and drawing in the Architecture Department at UC
Berkeley in the 1980s and has since taught at the University of Utah and the University of Oregon, as the Pietro Bellushi Distinguished Visiting Professor. Hartman’s long term interest in vernacular buildings has recently led to research on the mining structures and landscapes of Appalachia.

All lectures are free and open to the public.
