Cultural Design Philosophy
Professor of Architecture
Anthony J. Piermarini earned his Bachelors of Architecture from Cornell University (1997) and his post-professional Masters of Architecture II degree from Harvard Graduate School of Design (1999). Committed to design excellence, service, and quality, Anthony guides clients through the design process to help realize each project’s goals. His approach emerges from a design philosophy that is sensitive to the specific culture and climate in which architecture operates. He seeks to strengthen the relationships between design, technology and the environment in which we build.
As Associate Professor of Architecture at Wentworth Institute of Technology, Anthony’s academic interests are at the intersection of social justice, media of representation, design research, and built material expression at any scale. He has also taught and lectured at various universities including Harvard, Cornell, MIT, Yale, Northeastern University, Roger Williams University, and University of Buffalo, among others.
Anthony also contributes to expanding the understanding of architecture through talks within the local municipalities, professional organizations, and academic communities. He is an advocate for making design accessible and potent, as demonstrated in his firm’s participation in the 1+ Pro Bono Design Program.
Anthony is also a co-founder of BR-A-CE: Building Research–Architecture–Community Exchange, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization founded by artists and designers to create new community spaces that engage social, economic, and cultural issues facing communities around the world.
