<h1>Gianpiero Pugliese</h1> <BR>
<h2>Founding Principal, B.A., M.Arch., O.A.A.</h2>
Gianpiero is a licensed architect and the founding principal of Audax. He has a Master of Architecture from Harvard University and a Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from the University of California, Berkeley. He also studied design at the Venice Institute of Architecture in Italy.
His current work at Audax explores the relationship between traditional design principles and the modern aesthetic. This approach, which he coined as Human Architecture, aims to bring the tactile, relatable and human-scaled elements that were lost during the Modern period back into contemporary design. The results of using this approach are buildings and interior spaces that appeal to those who admire the warmth and detailing of traditional architecture but also appreciate modern design.
Gianpiero is a faculty member of The Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design at The University of Toronto. He also formerly sat on the University’s faculty council as the representative from the Ontario Association of Architects.
