“Paul Lewis brings a fascinating mix of project experience which covers a wide range in project size and type. Boldly beginning with the creation of LTL Architects by proposing unbuilt projects, this led to books and exhibition design, and design and fabrication of cost-effective materials — particularly for restaurants,” stated Forum Executive Director Nate Eudaly. “The firm’s work has evolved into a focus on large-scale academic and cultural structures, including the outstanding art museum in Austin, that have garnered many awards. With Mr. Lewis’s additional experience as an author of best-selling books and monographs, as well as academic experience as Professor and Associate Dean at Princeton University School of Architecture, we believe he will present a program of great interest.”
