ANTOINE PREDOCK, FAIA (1936-)
Though he considers himself an Albuquerque native, Predock was born in Lebanon, Missouri. The son of an engineer, he first attended the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Engineering and the University of New Mexico to study engineering. He switched career paths and transferred to Columbia University, where he earned a B.A. in architecture. In 1967, Predock founded his studio in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and also has an office in Taipei.
Predock first gained national attention with the La Luz community in
Albuquerque, New Mexico. In addition to his residential work, Predock's
projects include the Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore
College, a new ballpark for the San Diego Padres, the National Palace Museum
Southern Branch in Southern Taiwan, and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights
in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Once considered an American Southwestern regionalist,
major international commissions cemented Predock’s belief that his
“regionalism is portable.” Predock was honored with the AIA Gold Metal in
2006. Bio adapted from Wikipedia. His archives are at the UNM Predock
