‘New generation’ architect to lecture at Syracuse Architecture
Audrey Matlock, Syracuse Architecture visiting critic and principal of Audrey Matlock Architect, New York City, will speak at the Syracuse University School of Architecture on Tuesday, Oct. 27, at 5 p.m. in Slocum Hall Auditorium. Her lecture, “MAXIMUM/minimum,” is free and open to the public. The lecture is supported in part through the Joseph D. Patton III Memorial Endowment for Visiting Critics.

Recently featured in Newsweek’s “How to Fix the World” 2009 special edition, Audrey Matlock Architect was highlighted as one of several “boutique design firms” involved in high-profile design development overseas, “exporting the fresh ideas of a new generation of American architects.” She has 30 years of experience as a practitioner and teacher of architecture. During that time, she has led the design effort on some of the world’s most prominent architectural offices, including seven years at Skidmore, Owings and Merrill and following that as director of design at Perkins and Will. She established an independent practice in 1993 with the intent to explore specific architectural design interests.
Matlock has led design teams on more than 100 projects. Current projects include a streetscape design and two residential condominium buildings in Manhattan and private residences in New York and Connecticut. In addition, a growing international practice includes residential and sports projects in Kazakhstan, hospitality projects in Trinidad and interior projects in Turkey. Matlock’s work has won more than 30 awards and has been frequently featured in major publications, including The New York Times, Architectural Record and Metropolis.
Matlock has taught several architectural design studios and has been a frequent lecturer and studio critic at several U.S. universities. Her work has been published and exhibited locally and internationally.
