Peter de Bretteville, Yale University, B.A. 1963, M.Arch 1968, is the founder and principle of Peter de Bretteville, Architect, in Hamden, Connecticut. After receiving his Masters degree from the Yale University School of Architecture, Peter de Bretteville worked in the office of Giancarlo De Carlo in Milan, Italy for two years. There he completed a wide range of projects including the restoration of the Teatro Sanzo in Urbino, and a paper factory for an Italian subsidiary of the Container Corporation of America. Shortly after arriving in Los Angeles in 1970 he co-founded the partnership WORKS which immediately won several awards. From 1974 he was in independent practice until 1982 when he formed the partnership of de Bretteville and Polyzoides. While in that partnership he carried out a number of civic and campus projects. The final collaboration of that partnership was a 20 year plan for downtown Los Angeles. In 1990 he dissolved that partnership to found his current firm in Connecticut. In California he taught at the California Institute of the Arts 1970-73, at UCLA 1973-76 and at USC 1976-90. Since 1990 he has been a Visiting Critic in Architectural Design at the Yale University School of Architecture. He has lectured in the U.S. and Canada on his work, campus planning and other theoretical and historical issues. While his architectural work has focused on college and university long term planning and buildings, Peter de Bretteville has completed a variety of other projects. Among these are civic centers, housing and residences. As a member of an urban design charrette team he has prepared proposals for the improvement and redevelopment of several small towns and neighborhoods in Connecticut. He has also recently been a design consultant to MYA for a series of high rise residential condominium projects in Seoul, Korea. Peter de Bretteville's research and publishing that began formally when he co-edited Perspecta 11 at Yale, has continued more recently in catalogues and exhibitions on various architects and campuses in California. This work, selections of which appeared in the second issue of The New City, is the subject of a seminar, Campus Design, he teaches periodically at Yale. Recent work is featured in two books on architecture and planning, The New Urbanism and Los Angeles the Current Condition. His CISTERN project has been featured in several magazines and books, the most recent being Private Towers by James Truelove.
