Antoine Predock

Antoine Predock (born 1936 in Lebanon, Missouri) is an American architect based in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Antoine Predock is the Principal of Antoine Predock Architect PC. The studio was established in 1967. Predock attended the University of New Mexico and later received his Bachelor of Architecture from Columbia University. He is a licensed architect in many states as well as a registered landscape architect and interior designer.

Predock first gained national attention with the La Luz community in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The Nelson Fine Arts Center at Arizona State University was his first nationally won design competition. Mr. Predock has built from his desert beginnings and completed work ranging from the Turtle Creek House, built in 1993 for bird enthusiasts along a prehistoric trail in Texas and the Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College to a new Ballpark for the San Diego Padres that reinvents the concept of a ballpark as a “garden” rather than solely a sports complex. His influence extends to international sites with the National Palace Museum Southern Branch in Southern Taiwan and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg, Manitoba, both are currently in design phases.

In 1985, Antoine Predock was awarded the Rome Prize and in 2006 he was honored with the American Institute of Architects highest award, the AIA Gold Medal.

While Antoine Predock's design has been highly influenced by his connection to New Mexico and the landscape, he brings a sense of force and interaction in his analysis and conceptual artistry. Focusing on such subjects as the individual in a building as a spiritual interaction, the body in motion, the essence of humans, technology, and the natural environment, he relays a strong sense of contextual appropriateness to his design with careful interpretation of regional identity.
