Ted Flato has received wide acclaim both nationally and internationally for his straight-forward regional designs, which incorporate indigenous building forms and materials and respond to the context of their landscape. By employing sustainable strategies to a wide variety of building types and scales, Ted seeks to conserve energy and natural resources while creating healthy built environments. His projects are always sensitive to the climate - whether along the Gulf Coast, in Michigan, west Texas or southern California.
Since founding Lake|Flato Architects with David Lake in 1984, the firm has received nearly 100 national and state architectural awards. In 2004, The American Institute of Architects awarded Lake|Flato the prestigious Firm Award, the highest honor an American architecture firm can receive. Lake|Flato has had five projects awarded the Top Ten Green Project Award by The American Institute of Architects Committee on the Environment, the premier award for sustainable design. His recently completed nature center in East Texas, Shangri La Botanical Gardens, received a Platinum LEED certification, one of only 50 projects in the world to achieve this level of sustainability.
Lake|Flato's work has been featured in 75 books and 120 national publications, including Lake|Flato's second monograph, Buildings & Landscapes, which was released in 2005.
The 2013 Kahn Lecture is generously sponsored by Diener Brick, Clemens Construction, and Jacobs Kling Stubbins.
