About the Author
Peter Waldman is rumored to have quarried mica ever since his early childhood explorations of the wilderness of New York City, more than seven decades ago. He studied architecture from 1961-69, first at Princeton University, and later as a Peace Corps volunteer architect in Arequipa, Peru. He served his apprenticeship in the studios of Richard Meier briefly and more substantially with Michael Graves. Since the 1970s, he has been an architect and educator teaching first at Princeton, briefly at the University of Cincinnati, then at Rice University and currently at the University of Virginia, where he is now firmly grounded in the Piedmont condition. His extensive residential practice has been concerned with the Climatic House confirming the ground rules of the city constructed according to Specifications for Construction anticipating the encampment of Citizens and Strangers. His fables of the Gardener and the Engineer manifest his profound respect for the spirit and resources of the resilient American urban condition.
