Description, Philosophy, History

Lawrence W. Speck received both undergraduate and graduate degrees of MIT where he also served on the faculty for three years after graduation. In 1975, he began teaching at the University of Texas, Austin, where he served as clean from 1992-2001. His practice grew from residential projects in the 1970's to large urban plan by the mid-1980's when he began his association with PageSoutherlandPage. The oldest architectural firm in Texas, PageSoutherlandPage has a staff of over 250 design professional, with offices in Austin, Houston, Dallas and Washington, DC. The firm's widely diversified practice has included almost every building type in locations around the world. Lawrence W. Speck and PageSoutherlandPage allied initially as two separate firms combining a strong design talent and capability with a long-standing track record of solid professional performance for several high-profile public projects. In 1999, Speck joined the firms as a design principal. The practice is committed to exploring four areas of particular interest: dealing with the paradoxes of contemporary urbanism; reinforcing the locality and diversity inherent in the different communites, cities and regions it deals with; applying a broad view of sustainability; and concentrating on a high quality of construction through careful use of materials and detailing.
