About our Judge
Paul Spreiregen is a Washington-based architect and planner with a life-long interest and devotion to the visual arts. In his work as an architect he places high priority on suiting structures to their natural settings, usually working on-site to conceive a structure and imagine how it will appear, striving always to be deferential to nature. He sketches avidly while traveling. His favorite subjects are landscape and the human figure.
His career interests and activities have been unusually diverse. He was the first Director of Architecture and Design Programs at the National Endowment for the Arts. He wrote and broadcast a weekly commentary on design for National Public Radio over a period of twelve years. He has written, edited or co-authored approximately a dozen books on architecture and planning. He has organized and conducted architectural design competitions, most notably the design competition for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the Mall.
He is a native of Boston, attended classes at the Museum of Fine Arts School in Boston, is a graduate of MIT, and was a Fulbright student in Italy. He has been a visiting lecturer and teacher at numerous schools of architecture, planning and landscape architecture.
In recent years he has been a regular student of Robert Liberace in his figure and portrait studio classes.
