This is an oral history interview with Peter Zweig conducted as part of the Houston History Project. Jackson Fox is a student leader of the Three Continents Program at the Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture at University of Houston. As a student of Peter Zweig at the time of the interview, he asks his professor to describe the focus and goals of his career as an architect, researcher, and educator in Houston. This interview offers a unique perspective of Houston’s relationship with the natural environment. As an architect, Zweig has worked professionally for over forty years. He has myriad awards and grants, eighty patents, and an impressive client list. Recently charged with directing the Three Continents Program at the Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture, Zweig explains how he and his students are researching the effects of urbanized coastlines, focusing especially on Houston. From the politics to the pollution, his research is attempting to “capture a snapshot” of Houston in an era of transition. This interview also includes Zweig’s own personal, optimistic reflections on the studio, the research, and the city. Interviewer: Jackson Fox.
