STANLEY TIGERMAN: ARCHITECT AS CHAMELEON

A bedrock belief in the classic theology of modern architecture was that architects always had to be original.

PUGH + SCARPA AIA FIRM AWARD 2010

It's not easy to pigeonhole Pugh + Scarpa Architects. And that's the way partners Gwynne Pugh, Larry Scarpa, and Angela Brooks like it.

The buildings they create are dynamic, many with colorful, angular, patterned facades that exude a sense of whimsical energy. Even at its most eye-catching, the work is also decisively rooted in function and energy efficiency. The firm has also established a substantial portfolio of affordable housing projects. — Published 2010.0127
