The Future Of Home-Building, Resilient Communities, and Environmental Awareness
Peter Lombardi is a world-renowned architect and founder of Peter Lombardi Architects. He is also the creator of Thrivable architecture.
World-renowned architect Peter Lombardi, founder of Peter Lombardi Architects, has developed a design philosophy that ties together social, economic, and ecological abundance to build “Thrivable” communities.
(Below, you can see a few renderings from Peter’s website, detailing plans for the “Intentional Community of Today”, a “cohesive development which merges common initiatives including wellness, clean energy, sustainability, vibrant community, environmental learning, organic farming, clean water and local economies.”)
Peter is truly a visionary. When I talk about inviting people who are “world-class” at their craft into Meeting of the Minds, Peter is the standard. I believe his work could be the future of cities, sustainable construction, and design in a world where upcycling, localized farming, and environmental awareness will be more important than ever before.
After receiving his Master of Architecture degree from Syracuse University, Peter worked in Florence, Italy for three years exploring the diverse approach to architecture and design unique to Italy and Europe at large.
These experiences led him back to the United States and a position with Robert AM Stern Architects. Here he was able to merge his European experiences with the best of American design, working on everything from the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum in Texas to the Villa Fleuri in France, private residences in Chicago and New York City, etc.
In 2010, Peter created his own firm, Peter A. Lombardi Architects, leading high end residential and commercial projects in the United States and internationally.
Peter is now merging his architectural forte with the larger realities of permaculture, organic farming, water collection and clean energy through is invention called ICOT®.
His work has appeared in publications such as Domus and Casa Bella as well as several books by Robert AM Stern. He is also the recipient of international juried prizes including: 1st place for the New Palos Verdes Arts Center and 2nd place worldwide for the New Charter High School in Duluth, Minnesota.
