Ted FLATO
FOUNDING PARTNER
LAKE I FLATO ARCHITECTS
San Antonio, TX
INAUGURAL FRANK WELCH MEMORIAL LECTURE

30 January 2018
Tuesday, 7:00 pm; Reception and check-in from 6:15 – 6:55 pm
Horchow Auditorium, Dallas Museum of Art

Ted Flato is a native to Corpus Christi, Texas and received his Bachelor of Science in Architecture
from Stanford University. Since founding Lake|Flato with David Lake in 1984, Ted has garnered
a reputation for crafting straight-forward, regional designs that leverage each unique site to
connect people to the natural environment. By employing sustainable strategies in a wide variety
of building types and scales, Ted seeks to conserve energy and natural resources while creating
a healthy built environment. His projects are responsive to their climate through implementation
of active and passive strategies which work together to promote environmental stewardship of
our natural resources. Additionally, Ted developed Lake|Flato Porch House—a system of
modules and connecting porch elements that link to the outdoors and simplifies the design
and construction process in a way that is less wasteful. Like many of Lake|Flato’s celebrated
designs, Porch House is born from the simplicity of vernacular architecture.

Ted has received international acclaim for a generous portfolio of high-performance yet beautiful
designs. Lake|Flato has received over 270 international, national and regional architectural
awards— including the prestigious AIA Architecture Firm Award. Ten Lake|Flato projects have
received the national AIA COTE Top Ten Project Award—more than any other firm in the nation.
As an established thought leader on place-based design, Ted lectures across the nation on
implementing healthy building strategies, crafting regionally relevant and landscape-driven
designs, and fostering community and healthy office culture, among many topics.

Ted’s recent design focus has been on residential, higher education and eco-conservation work,
including the AIA National Housing Award-winning Blue Lake Retreat in Marble Falls, TX; the new
Knox College Whitcomb Art Building in Galesburg, IL; and the master plan and design for a new
immersive Children & Family Garden Education Center for The Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix,
AZ.
