Riassunto: Curtis Fentress is an internationally known architect who passionately pursues the creation of sustainable and iconic public architecture. His studio focuses on inspired design for people, incorporating context and culture to create one-of-a-kind buildings for clients and users. This monograph spans the 30-year history of this innovative studio, both examining the creative working process and tracing artistic influences from fashion, music, dance, sculpture, fine jewellery and other disciplines. Fentress' portfolio of award-winning designs includes world-class airports, museums, convention centers, courthouses, civic buildings, laboratories, higher education facilities, and office towers.
Curtis Fentress was born in North Carolina, and graduated with honors from North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Architecture degree. After leaving a position with I.M. Pei, Fentress joined the newly formed firm Kohn Pedersen Fox to continue his pursuit of large-scale public projects while striving to bring humanism to civic buildings. In the late 1970s, KPF sent him to Denver as project designer for a 36-story tower in Denver. In 1980, Fentress founded his own firm and later was awarded the opportunity to design Denver International Airport, which propelled him into the international realm. DIA, Incheon International Airport and numerous museums, convention centers and other civic buildings have earned Fentress Architects more than 300 awards for innovation and design excellence. Curtis Fentress, FAIA, RIBA, is the 2010 winner of the American Institute of Architects Thomas Jefferson Award, the highest honor in public architecture worldwide.
