Discover a range of stories from architects in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico regions.

From the beginning of his career, Peter Landon, FAIA, has had the community in mind – engaging on a one-to-one level that brings neighborhood-specific solutions to life. That legacy has continued since the 70s and has received numerous awards and accolades. That’s why it comes as no surprise that he will be recognized with a Lifetime Achievement Award from AIA Chicago’s Board of Directors.

For more than four decades, Landon served as “an advocate for excellence and equity in design, particularly in under-resourced communities”. GRAPHISOFT had the distinct honor to profile his firm and the work at Landon Bone Baker Architects (LBBA) in our first season of By Design, our award-winning digital series on the present and future of architecture. Peter and the LBBA team were featured
in our acclaimed second episode, titled "The New Urbanism". In the clip below, Peter Landon and Jeff Bone speak with passion and humility about what motivates them to remain committed to bringing good design to community-based housing.

Prepare to be inspired.

LBBA works firmly grounded in the beliefs that good design is for everyone and that architects play an essential role in making that happen for the community. Working from a core relationship with advocates so that they best address the needs of diverse residents and neighbors, LBBA strives to “…recognize and respect the value of our diversity...”

The entire team at GRAPHISOFT would like to congratulate Peter Landon for his receiving this distinct honor. Landon will receive the award on October 26 at Designight 2018, celebrating Chicago’s architectural community and the 2018 recipients of the Design Excellence Awards.

Congratulations to Peter Landon of Landon Bone Baker

AIA Chicago’s Board of Directors has selected Peter Landon, FAIA to receive the 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award.
