Charles R. Stinson Architects: Compositions in Nature
After graduating from the University of Minnesota's architecture school, Charles Stinson's further studies drew him toward the compositions of artist Charles Biederman and architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Biederman's colorful geometric forms, combined with Wright's compositional strategies, set him on a unique creative path.
Today, as an internationally renowned architect with a distinctive style in which the light and space express a dynamic co-existence, Stinson still draws every project an array of colored pencils always at hand.
For more than 30 years, Stinson had honed an original compositional methodology elastic enough to encompass a range of site conditions and geographical locations, and project types from a bank to a poolside gazebo, an entire master-planned community to a condominium, an new lakeside or urban home to a rural renovation.
As his practice moves forward alongside advances in green technologies and materials, and with national and international clients whose visions of an architectural future surpass even his own, Stinson's self-appointed challenge is to evolve his singular architectural methodology to encompass with integrity and flexibility, new possibilities as they reveal themselves.
