“Innocence, some ignorance, and youthful daring moved us to explore the unprecedented.” – Tician Papachristou.
Architect Tician Papachristou passed away on June 18, 2018 at the age of 90. Boulder’s architecture scene regards Papachristou with enormous fondness and respect, and considers him “the one who got away.” Before moving to New York in 1965 to work with legendary architect Marcel Breuer, Papachristou practiced architecture in Boulder, where he led the charge in facilitating pivotal change to its architectural landscape. His body of work in Boulder, which includes a local historic landmark and several designated Structures of Merit, was influenced by the vernacular architecture of his native Greece as well modernists including Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier.
Month of Modern’s Papachristou Tribute Discussion recalled the contributions of the man known for his use of natural materials, dramatic ceilings, striking custom fireplaces and the seamless transitions between indoor and outdoor spaces. We met former employees and clients and who shared his words, ideologies and the principles he stood for.
