John Peterson is the founder of Public Architecture – a multidiscipline design practice in San Francisco enriched by a diverse group of professionals with expertise in architecture, education, graphic design, journalism, landscape architecture, law and publishing.
With the creation of 1% Solution, Public Architecture has taken a leadership role in identifying significant problems of broad social relevance which require innovative research and design. 1% Solution encourages architecture firms to formalize their commitment to the public good by pledging one percent of their billable hours to public interest work.
In addition to his service via Public Architecture, John serves on several nonprofit boards including Urban Solutions and the South of Market Business Association. He is a Mayoral appointee on the City’s Green Vision Council and the Mayor’s Open Space Task Force. Mr. Peterson earned both architectural and fine arts degrees from RISD and was a John L. Loeb Fellow at the Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
