De Leon & Primmer Architecture Workshop (DPAW) is collaborative design studio
recognized for work that draws inspiration from regional traditions of craft, fabrication and building, placing an emphasis on the potential of conventional materials and construction methods. Through an immersive process of research & investigation, the studio cultivates an understanding of contextual specificity as a thoughtful relationship between place, time and local culture. In implementing this approach, the Workshop purposefully embraces a rigor of simplicity and precision, with the underlying premise that innovation necessarily equals economy.
In his lecture, Roberto de Leon AIA, LEED AP, NCARB will focus on a selection of the studio’s range of work, specifically highlighting the design approaches & explorations unique to each project and context. De Leon is a visiting critic at Syracuse Architecture this semester.
