Peter Krasnow Architect PLLC was established to offer clients, architects, and builders personal and interactive discussions leading to architectural options, opportunities and solutions to meet challenging programs.
Peter Krasnow’s professional passion for JUSTICE architecture was sparked and kindled at The Gruzen Partnership where he enjoyed ten years developing and designing unique facilities with innovative features. By advancing justice facility design Peter changed the lives of those who live and work in these places.
At Daniel Mann Johnson & Mendenhall (DMJM) he spearheaded their efforts in the justice architectural market. As a DMJM Vice President and Justice Design Principal, he instructed a large staff on the core principles of planning, programming and operations necessary to achieving state-of-the-art design and detailing for many different types of complex buildings. This led to the publication of his worldwide recognized resource: Correctional Facility Design And Detailing (McGraw-Hill, 1998, reissued in 2009).
He joined Kaplan McLaughlin Diaz (KMD) as Director and opened their New York City offices. Peter remained focused on the mission of advancing justice architecture and inspiring those working with him while encouraging their individual goals and development as architects.
In today’s highly-charged security-minded society, every building type incorporates many justice related features within their programs for academic, residential, commercial and healthcare architecture.
For his contributions to justice architectural planning and design, and as one of America’s veteran justice design innovators, Peter Krasnow was honored as a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects in 2001.
