AD Interviews: Lawrence Scarpa

Back in June we had the chance to interview Lawrence Scarpa in Miami, at the AIA Convention when Pugh + Scarpa Architects received the 2010 AIA Firm Award.

Pugh + Scarpa Architects is known for their ability to consistently design within the top tier of architectural works.  Their success in creating spaces that blend architecture and craft with community involvement capitalizing on in-house talent is one example of why they have been recognized with more than 50 local, state, and national AIA awards, including the 2010 AIA National Firm Award and the 2010 AIA California Firm Award.

The firm has distinguished themselves with place-making architecture providing each of their clients with a building that truly is their own, an organic derived, sustainable, inventive work of art. Pugh + Scarpa Architects design process, whether for public or private use, for rich or for poor, focuses on engaging the user and utilizing common materials in beautiful and extraordinary ways.

Pugh + Scarpa Architects was founded in 1991 by Gwynne Pugh and Lawrence Scarpa, and Angela Brooks became a partner in 2001. In September partners went in different directions, splitting into two firms: Gwynne Pugh Urban Studio and Brooks + Scarpa Architects.
