From City to Country: An Inside Look at New Projects
With Peter Pennoyer Architects’ Founding Partner Peter Pennoyer

This will be an in-person and online lecture on Tuesday, March 12th, 6:00 pm

General Society of Mechanics & Tradesmen of The City of New York
20 West 44th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues) Manhattan.
The In-Person Program will be followed by a book signing.



For the past 30 years, Peter Pennoyer Architects has upheld the gold standard of traditional residential architecture. Their diverse portfolio of projects, which includes spectacular single-family houses across the country, museum exhibitions, high-rise buildings, and even the clock at the heart of Moynihan Train Hall at New York Penn Station, represents their refined vision and creative process.

The firm’s new book, Peter Pennoyer Architects: City | Country—the first collection of work to be released in over a decade— explores 19 of their most recent and exciting projects. Please Join Peter Pennoyer for an exclusive look, as he opens the doors to stylish city residences—from a historic townhouse in Greenwich Village to a triplex on the Ladies’ Mile of Fifth Avenue, and a riverfront Art Deco apartment—as well as spectacular country and coastal properties, including an Arts & Crafts house in Ohio’s Chagrin River Valley, a 17th-century Colonial restoration project on Long Island, and a Shingle-style summer house on an island in Maine.

As he shares photos and talks about the process of designing distinctive architecture, Mr. Pennoyer will offer insight into how he and his firm take a client’s vision and transform it into houses and buildings that are informed by tradition and history with a contemporary perspective and designed, above all, to endure.

Peter Pennoyer is the founding partner of Peter Pennoyer Architects, a New York–based architecture and design firm. A Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, he is the co-author, with Anne Walker, of five books on early 20th-century American architects and the author of A House in the Country, written with his wife, interior designer Katie Ridder. Recent projects include a house for the Jeff Koons family, an Art Deco–style apartment building on Madison Avenue, and Rowdy Meadow, an award-winning Czech Cubism–style house in Ohio.

Peter Pennoyer Architects: City | Country will be available for purchase in-person at the talk and online.
