Peter L. Gluck is founder and principal of GLUCK+ in New York. For over 40 years, the practice has committed to crafting bold, innovative and conceptually unique architecture. The firm’s work is diverse and consistently recognized through national and international design awards and publications. Most work is constructed by the firm through their unique approach to Architect Led Design Build (ALDB). In 2014, Fast Company’s “World’s Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Architecture” list included GLUCK+ “for taking control of the entire building process.” An early firm monograph, The Modern Impulse: Peter L. Gluck and Partners, was published in 2008.
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. 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 April 2017 as “one of the city’s best new works of public architecture.”
Peter received his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Architecture from Yale University in 1965. He and others in his class were the catalyst for what would become the Yale Building Project. 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. Peter lectures widely on the need for architects to change the profession and has served on the NCARB Futures Task Force, advising on the future of the role of the architect. He also serves on the Auburn University Rural Studio Advisory Group, and the HCAD Advisory Board for New Jersey Institute of Technology.
