Peter L. Gluck is founder and principal of GLUCK+ in New York City. For more than 40 years, the practice has committed to crafting bold, innovative, and conceptually unique architecture with real world expertise. The firm's work is diverse and consistently recognized through national and international design awards and publications. Most work is constructed by the firm through their unique approach to "architect-led design-build." In 2014, Fast Company's "World's Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Architecture" list included GLUCK+, "for taking control of the entire building process." GLUCK+ was featured in The Architectural League of New York's Current Work lecture series with the presentation "Thinking Making Making Thinking."  

Current projects include Bridge, a high-rise development under construction in Old City, Philadelphia; the Cary Leeds Center for Tennis and Learning, a public/private initiative in Crotona Park, Bronx; and Van Sinderen Plaza, an affordable housing development in East New York, Brooklyn. Other award-winning projects include Duke University Marine Lab's new oceanographic science research lab building; The East Harlem School; Little Ajax Affordable Housing, Aspen, Colorado; Lakeside Retreat, Upstate New York; Tower House, Upstate New York, which was selected by Architectural Record for their "Record Houses" issue in 2013; and Floating Box House, Austin.
