Ben Waechter on The Importance of Clarity in Architecture

Ben Waechter, founder of Portland, Oregon-based Waechter Architecture, will deliver a keynote presentation on his acclaimed 12-person studio’s “clarity” approach, which results in buildings that emerge anatomically, with space, material and building systems considered equally and holistically. Projects to be discussed include Tower House (2014), Furioso Vineyards (2018) and The Society Hotel Bingen (2019).

Ben Waechter, AIA
Principal Architect and Founder, Waechter Architecture

Inspired by experiential and clear, distilled design, Ben founded Waechter Architecture (WA) in order to pursue these concepts in his work. Prior to forming WA, he worked locally and internationally with leaders in architecture including Allied Works Architecture (Portland, OR) and world-renowned architect Renzo Piano (Genoa, Italy). Ben is an award-winning and published designer whose principles lie in providing bold forms arrived at through exercises in concept, distillation, and intelligent programming. His experience includes a wide range of building types: cultural, hospitality, commercial, and multi-family and single-family residential.
