Quote of Note | Peter Marino

“I went to Cornell because it had the most fine-arts-oriented architecture program, and I believed at one point that I would be an artist—that I was only tinkering with design. In the 1960s everything was all Brave New World, but you could still catch a faint whiff of Beaux Arts. That European tradition meant more of a living, breathing relationship between art and architecture. People don’t think enough about integrating the two.”

Peter Marino in the January issue of Architectural Digest. Marino’s multifaceted relationship with art is the subject of One Way, an exhibition on view through May 3, 2015 at the Bass Museum of Art in Miami Beach.
