Designer Membership

Founder’s Vision
"Ten years into my practice, Peterson Architects, I found myself in a position in which many design firm principals do: yearning to provide a more balanced experience for myself and my staff, beyond our largely high-end residential projects and clientele. I wanted to address issues that would have an impact on a larger segment of our community. We focused our energies on an open space strategy for San Francisco’s South of Market area. In the process, our humble efforts exposed a profound lack of resources and support for pro bono practice within the architecture profession. That revelation inspired the creation of Public Architecture, and, thereafter, the 1+ program."
