Designing Tusen Takk – A Modernist Masterpiece

By Peter Bohlin, FAIA

Geoffrey Peckham, Tusen Takk Foundation

This presentation is a unique opportunity to hear one of the world’s finest architects, Peter Bohlin, discuss the fundamental design principles that underlie his understanding of how great buildings consider the circumstances of the nature of people, places and how we make things.

The designing of Tusen Takk will serve as a means to explore the ideas behind many of the iconic modernist buildings that AIA Gold Medal recipient Peter Bohlin and his firm Bohlin Cywinski Jackson (BCJ.com) have created. Geoffrey Peckham, a photographer and Tusen Takk’s visionary owner and director, will assist in describing Tusen Takk’s past, present and future.

Peter Bohlin was commissioned by Geoffrey Peckham to create Tusen Takk, a spectacular residence with a now under construction artist-in-residence guesthouse and studio located on the shores of Lake Michigan in Leelanau County. Individual artists, one at a time, will come from around the world to Tusen Takk to work for a short period of time. Plans are for collaboration activities to take place at Northwest Michigan College, The Dennos Museum or Leland’s Old Art Building where the Tusen Takk guest artist will share insights about their work with the people of this region.
