Earth Day 2012 - Honoring Peter MacKenzie AIA: August 30, 1961 – March 21, 2012

On Earth Day this year we are honoring Peter MacKenzie.  He will be missed as a champion for the underserved and the planet, and  as a friend.  May people like Peter inspire us all. An Excerpt from David Baker + Partners blog below.  Read more HERE.

Peter began a student internship in 1983 with David Baker FAIA, leading to his position as the firm's third employee. Peter spent his full career at this firm. He earned his architectural license in 1988 and was made Partner of the firm, now known as David Baker + Partners, in early 2001. Peter designed more than 2,500 new homes throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. The projects he headed garnered more than 60 local and national design awards. In total his built work exceeds $500M in construction value. Peter took quiet pride in the firm's selection as the 2012 Distinguished Practice by the AIA California Council.

His most recent completed project, Richardson Apartments, providing 120 green homes for formerly homeless residents in SF, just received a 2012 National AIA Housing Award. Peter valued his trusted long-term relationships with partners David Baker FAIA and Kevin Wilcock AIA as well as clients, such as Holliday Development, BRIDGE Housing, Tenderloin Neighborhood Development Co, MidPen Housing and Mercy Housing California. Many of his clients grew into his close friends.
