Galen Pardee, the 2019-20 Howard E. LeFevre ’29 Emerging Practitioner Fellow and his studio Drawing Agency were nominated for two awards for Building of the Year by ArchDaily. Pardee’s Harlem Studio and The Great Lakes Architectural Expedition are both nominated and visitors can vote on the ArchDaily website.
Harlem Studio is a conversion of a two-bedroom, mid-century apartment in Upper Manhattan into a live/work studio space for two artists. The key principle of Harlem Studio was leaving as much of the apartment’s existing materials in place, working to improve or revise only those elements most in need of modernization.
The Great Lakes Architectural Expedition’s mission was the fundamental rethinking of architecture’s role in the Great Lakes Megalopolis. Using archival models, drawings, documents, and studies, this rare glimpse into the office’s archives explores the organizational structure of the Great Lakes Architectural Expedition itself, as well as early attempts by the Expedition’s Lake Erie Board to establish their roles as public advocates and draft the contours of non-human architect-client relationships. Pardee’s Great Lakes project was on exhibit in Knowlton’s Banvard Gallery from September to October 2020.
