Style and Substance: Designing a New Urbanist town in the 21st Century a lecture by Marieanne Khoury Vogt
Marieanne Khoury Vogt is a founding principal of Khoury & Vogt Architects, formed in 2001 in Miami as a practice in architecture, urban design, and town planning. Khoury received a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Wisconsin (after studying for 3 years at L’Ecole Spéciale d’Architecture in Paris, France) and has a Master of Architecture and Master of Urban Planning from the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee.
The practice, currently based in Alys Beach, Florida, engages projects in a variety of scales, programs, and locales. Each is strongly rooted in enduring types and forms that have developed over time to serve both the individual inhabitant at the scale of the building and shape the individual building at the scale of the city. This grounding in typological tradition allows for an exploration of architectural character and language that, while deploying the principles of classical composition, offers a synthesis of modern and vernacular styles, often inflected by the influence of the tropics and Mediterranean. In all cases, the work strives to partake in equal parts both traditional and invention and to instill in the inhabitant a sense of comfort and delight.
