TRAVIS PRICE a celebrated architect, author, educator, and philosopher has developed in the past three decades, a modern architecture that works hand in hand with ecology and mythology and restores the spirit of place to modern design. His vision is grounded in real-life success for over 30 years with large-scale AIA award-winning private and public works, including the world’s largest solar building. He has planned new town developments, and designed an array of unique individual residences, commercial properties, and institutional monuments.
He coined the term “passive solar” with his early green architectural works.
