Peter Halquist received a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Studio Art from St. Olaf College and an M.Arch from the University of Michigan Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning. He is currently a Researcher at Akoaki and a Project Manager for the O.N.E Mile project in Detroit’s North End neighborhood.
His work employs a process driven and cross-disciplinary approach to areas of design ranging from visual art production to advanced composites. His current research investigates the ability of novel material, electrical and structural systems to produce visual effects and spatial experiences. These efforts seek to collapse the distance between technological production and social practice within architecture.
