Peter Suen received a Masters of Architecture from U.C. Berkeley where he was particularly interested in the role of the architect as a designer of information and how that can have a direct impact on how we live. He has focused on different systems of intelligence, from analog computation to living slime mold, and sought to understand how these systems can process information differently from human designers. Before architecture, Peter worked both as an intellectual property attorney and as a software developer. He received a JD from Stanford Law School in 2002 and a Master of Science in Computer Science from Carnegie Mellon University in 2004. Working in San Francisco, he has had works on design and building in a wide range of projects from small scale residential to larger commercial projects. Peter has coordinated the Emerging Technologies group at the Academy of Art University in SF since 2015. He is the recipient of various awards including the Eisner Prize for Architecture and the Henry Adams AIA Medal and has published various peer-reviewed articles on Artificial Intelligence and Materials innovation in design.
