Zoltan Pali is the creative energy and tireless driving force behind the award-winning firm Studio Pali Fekete architects (SPF:a) and each project completed bears his signature. With such recent high-profile commissions as the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures, which he will be undertaking with Renzo Piano, SPF:a proves time and time again that Californian modern architecture is alive and well. In his own words, his design approach is timeless, “I feel I have one foot in the past, one foot in the future and I straddle the present.”
Architect, curator and innovator Zoltan Pali will be joining us at Palm Springs Modernism Week this year to host a special lecture entitled The Face of Modernism Turns that will discuss some of the changes in modernism and how this has affected the work of his firm, SPF:a. Discover how he and partner Judit Fekete continue their mission of generating architecture that fuses the forces of site, program, budget, nature, and culture to uncover poetry and joy, and usually, an uncanny portrait of the patron. Zoltan will highlight projects large and small, residential and urban, built and unbuilt, won and lost.
