In this episode, Rachel interviews Peter Zellner recognized for his highly tailored spaces by Le Monde, the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times and notable public and private art galleries, artist studios, and residences in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York on how he himself as a designer and artist transcended his own chromophobia in design of the traditional white cuba art gallery space and his own painting.
Peter Martinez Zellner was the Ivan Smith Eminent Chair at the University of Florida, School of Architecture, and the Brown-Forman Visiting Chair in Architecture at the University of Kentucky College of Design.
In 2017 he launched the Free School of Architecture, a student-run, tuition-free experimental architecture school. Peter is an Executive Board Member of From Lot to Spot, a green space equity organization located in Boyle Heights.
Martinez Zellner holds a Master in Architecture from the Harvard University Graduate School of Design and a Bachelor of Architecture from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in Australia.
This fall, he will teach at the Pratt Institute’s School of Architecture in New York.
