Architect Peter Bohlin is well known for his wide range of work, including the retail stores for Apple worldwide; public institutions such as the new Newport Beach City Hall; and cultural buildings that include the Discovery and Visitor Center in Grand Teton National Park. In 2010, Bohlin was awarded the American Institute of Architects' Gold Medal, the highest achievement bestowed upon an individual architect by the institute.

This fall, he brings his internationally renowned talent to Houston’s own Hermann Park. Selected by Hermann Park Conservancy, Bohlin and his team at Bohlin Cywinski Jackson are designing the entry pavilion within the park’s new Centennial Gardens. As the conservancy’s largest and lushest undertaking to date, the gardens will honor and celebrate 100 years of Hermann Park, which reaches this milestone in 2014.

Join Bohlin for this program and learn more about his design philosophy and plans for Hermann Park. Discussion moderated by Sarah M. Whiting, dean, Rice School of Architecture.
