Event description

Founded in 1992 by Andrew Skurman, Skurman Architects is based in San Francisco and Paris. Drawing from on-site study, and a rare collection of academic monographs, the firm uses historical precedents to guide its design process for innovative, and sophisticated solutions for modern building and living. The firm utilizes the Beaux-Arts tradition of watercolor rendering, along with constructing models, to further complement its work. Skurman Architects is recognized nationally and internationally for custom residences, from grand country residences to city apartments. The firm has emerged as the leading practice for applying classicism through the diverse traditions of the French, Georgian, and Mediterranean (Greco-Roman) styles. Skurman was recently a visiting artist at the American Academy in Rome. He is currently working on projects in Japan, India, France and California.
