USF School of Architecture and Community Desgin Architecture Lecture: Jake Brillhart
The USF SACD Spring 2018 lecture series presents Jacob Brillhart of Brillhart Architecture, a design office based in Miami, FL. Work ranges from residential and commercial projects to design-build endeavors, exhibitions, interiors, furniture and other speculative research projects. Interpretations of vernacular building principles and emphasis on composition and construction logic are the common themes that link the firm’s projects together. Often, the structure is the architecture, and sense of atmosphere is derived through the use of materials and a deep connection to the landscape.
The firm has been honored with national and international design awards, and work has been featured in publications around the world. Honors include 2015 House of Year (Architect’s Newspaper); local and state AIA awards and international competition winnings. In 2015, the firm was selected as one of five finalists for MoMA PS1’s Young Architects Program. Work has been featured in the New York Times, Wallpaper, Architectural Record, Architectural Digest, Dwell, The Wall Street Journal, Architect, and Architectural Review, among other publications. Brillhart’s furniture designs and watercolor paintings have also been exhibited throughout Miami.
This lecture is presented as part of the USF School of Architecture & Community Design’s Spring 2018 lecture series. For additional event information, please visit: http://arch.usf.edu/.
