Lecture: De Leon & Primmer: “Recent Work”
September 23, 2013 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
De Leon & Primmer Architecture Workshop was established in 2003 as a design studio focusing on cultural and civic environments. Based in Louisville, Kentucky, the duo use the contextual specificity of our region as an open-ended opportunity for research & investigation. Their history of working with not-for-profit organizations and grass-roots community efforts has shaped a practice grounded in exploring architectural possibilities to enrich & nurture our community through both design and the collaborative process of consensus-building.
Their working methodology draws inspiration from local traditions of craft & fabrication, placing an emphasis on ordinary materials and conventional construction methods. They purposefully cultivate a reductive design rigor aimed at both economy and constructability. In a similar vein, De Leon & Primmer approach sustainability from an equally regional perspective, favoring simple ‘passive’ strategies over specialized systems through a nuanced understanding of site and climate.
