Peter David Cavaluzzi, FAIA


Peter Cavaluzzi helped to establish EE&K’s unique approach to architecture in which buildings and public spaces are conceived together as a complete design. Peter’s designs are sparked by a creative understanding and insight of each site and place, and usually begin with a simple analytic sketch. His expertise covers the spectrum from complex urban infill sites to sweeping waterfronts in the US and abroad.. His designs for CityCenter, which brought urbanism for the first time to the Las Vegas Strip, and other transformative large-scale projects have garnered national recognition and numerous national awards.
