ABOUT

Peter Kimelman (PK) is an artist, architect, designer and thinker whose work focuses on an immersive experience, spanning the arbitrary boundaries of building, interior, graphic, and event design. A New York City native, PK relocated to the West Coast to practice after spending several years in architectural publishing. Passionate about design culture and pedagogy he has taught design, theory and digital technology at several institutions including UCLA, Iowa State, Woodbury, and Drury Universities. He currently teaches architectural design at the Academy of Art in San Francisco. His research on wine, design and branding for SFMoMA was on view in the exhibit: How Wine Became Modern, and has worked for several prominent San Francisco architecture firms.

In 2010, he co-founded the FLUX Foundation, a non-profit collaborative art practice that explores the dynamics between the social and formal components of experience. His research and installations focus on immersive, interactive, experiences that utilize atmosphere and spectacle to generate social effects. He received his Master of Architecture degree from UCLA as a Regents Fellow, and his Bachelor of Architecture degree from Cornell University.
