Peter L. Gluck is founder and principal of GLUCK+ in New York. He received both a Bachelor of Arts (’62) and a Master of Architecture (’65) from Yale University. The Modern Impulse, a monograph of his firm’s work, was published in 2008. Since 1972, the firm has generated a multi-faceted approach to the design of award-winning buildings, recognized for their bold, inventive and thoughtful design solutions. Most work is constructed by the firm through their unique approach to Architect Led Design Build (ALDB). Recent projects include Bridge, one of the first LEED Gold high-rise developments in Philadelphia; Duke University Marine Lab’s new LEED Gold oceanographic science research lab building; and a private Artist Retreat in upstate New York which won a BSA Housing Design Award in 2017. The Stack, the first prefabricated steel and concrete modular residential development in New York City, was featured in Fast Company’s “Making It” Series, and received an AIANY/BSA Housing Award in 2015. GLUCK+ also designed and built the award-winning Cary Leeds Center for Tennis & Learning, a public/private initiative in Crotona Park, Bronx, which The New York Times hailed in 2017 as “one of the city’s best new works of public architecture.”
A frequently invited guest lecturer and keynote speaker on the work of GLUCK+, Mr. Gluck also has spoken on the architect redefining their role in construction and development, and the responsibility of architects to change the profession; as well as authoring the chapter on Architect Led Design Build in the current edition of the AIA Architects Handbook of Professional Practice. He has served on the AIA Project Delivery Knowledge Community National Advisory Group, and recently, the NCARB Futures Task Force to examine where the practice of architecture is headed. He serves on the Board of Trustees at The East Harlem School, an independent middle school for which GLUCK+ designed and built their new school building in 2008; on the Auburn University Rural Studio Advisory Group; and on the NJSOA OcAD Board of Visitors for New Jersey Institute of Technology. He has taught at Columbia and Yale schools of architecture and curated exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Milan Triennale.
