2016 Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient: JAMES CARPENTER

James Carpenter has worked at the intersection of architecture, art, and engineering for nearly 50 years, advancing a distinctive vision based on the use of natural light as the foundational elements of the built environment. Originally trained as a studio artist, Carpenter founded the cross-disciplinary design firm James Carpenter Design Associates in 1979, deploying these aesthetic principles on large-scale architectural projects. Applying a profound knowledge of materiality and craft, Carpenter has striven to integrate a collective experience of nature within the built environment.

Carpenter has been recognized with numerous national and international awards, including an Academy Award in Architecture from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship. He holds a degree in architecture and sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design and was a Loeb Fellow of Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design.
