Jerry Tate to present APDesign Regnier Distinguished International Lecture
Jerry Tate, architect and founding partner at Tate Harmer in London, England, will present "The Picturesque and Other Adventures" as part of the 2021 Victor L. Regnier Distinguished International Lecture for the College of Architecture, Planning & Design. The virtual lecture will be at 4:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 22, via YouTube Live. The event is free and open to the public.
Tate founded Tate Harmer in 2007 and maintains a central role in the practice. He is driven by his desire to generate creative, pragmatic and unique solutions for each project. Tate is influential across all projects, ensuring design quality is paramount.
Tate was educated at Nottingham University and the Bartlett School of Architecture, where he received the Antoine Predock Design Award, subsequently completing a master's degree at Harvard University where he received the Kevin V. Kieran Prize. Before establishing Tate Harmer, he worked at Grimshaw Architects where he led significant projects, including "The Core" education facilities at the Eden Project in Cornwall, U.K.
Tate is frequently invited to lecture, notably at the Carpenters Fellowship and Ecobuild, as well as contribute to architecture publications, including Building Design, Sustain, and World Architecture News. He has taught at Harvard University, run a timber design and make course for the Dartmoor Arts organization and currently teaches at the Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL. In his spare time, Tate is involved with a number of charities and is a trustee at the Grimshaw Foundation and West London City Farm.
The Victor L. Regnier Distinguished International Lecture was established in 2013 by the family of Victor and Helen Regnier, the V&H Charitable Foundation, to bring an internationally acclaimed architect to Kansas State University and APDesign.
