Patrick Ahearn Lecture: Our Responsibility to Respect and Relate

Join Architectural Delight as we spend time with lauded architect Patrick Ahearn, FAIA, to discuss the importance of connecting our designs to the context and culture around us. When we do that, we connect our work to something larger than ourselves. It is not about style, it’s about the sense of place we will leave to those who come after us.

One of America’s most celebrated classical architects and a fellow of the American Institute of Architects, Patrick Ahearn has focused on historically motivated, site-sensitive residences in New England and beyond for more than 40 years. On the Vineyard alone he has completed more than 350 residences, prompting Architectural Digest to proclaim “this architecture is the reason why people covet Martha’s Vineyard real estate.”

Patrick has been awarded degrees in architecture and urban design from Syracuse University and has taught coursework at both Syracuse and the Boston Architectural College. Today, he oversees the architectural firm that bears his name in both Boston and Edgartown while also deftly drafting firsthand. A recipient of countless awards, Patrick and his work have been featured in numerous publications and broadcast outlets including Architectural Digest, the Wall Street Journal, HGTV and more. His acclaimed monograph, Timeless, was published in 2018 and is in its 6th reprint.
