John Peterson is Founder and President of Public Architecture, a national non-profit organization that brings design services to people and places that traditionally do not have access to high-quality environments. He is the recipient of numerous design and social innovation awards and writes and speaks internationally about the role that the design of the built environment has in improving underserved communities. Peterson serves on the board of Urban Solutions and the Cancer Prevention Institute of California, was a Loeb Fellow at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design and is an adjunct professor at California College of the Arts.

Public Architecture’s 1% program has institutionalized pro bono service within the architecture and design profession. Leveraging the resources of firms through pro bono service grants has generated nearly $50 million in design services each year. Public Architecture's 1% has over 1000 architecture and design firms offering assistance to 700+ nonprofits. In addition to creating intellectual resources to help support activities, Public Architecture undertakes select public-interest design projects with innovative environmental and social justice opportunities.

Peterson will also lecture as part of the Baumer Lecture Series on October 1 at 5:30 p.m. in the Gui Auditorium.


Lunch will be provided during the workshop/presentation, but space is limited and registration is required. Registration for this event is now closed.
