It is with great sadness that we relay the news that architect Peter Shelton has died of cancer at the age of 67. A star distiller of big ideas into simple gestures, he formed a dynamic duo with Lee Mindel (the two had been classmates at Penn) in 1978 shortly after graduating from Pratt. Their firm, which now spans planning, architecture, interiors, and product design, quickly built a reputation for its thoughtful modernism and knack with rich materials. You may also recall Shelton’s cameo on Project Runway, when he and wife Laura Bennett (a season-three finalist) welcomed Tim Gunn into the Manhattan loft they shared with six children and and several pets, including a memorably recalcitrant turtle. Last year, the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum presented Shelton, Mindel & Associates with the National Design Award for interior design. Shelton called the honor “an invigorating kick in the butt, for me especially, because after thirty years I could use one.” Here are Shelton and Mindel accepting the award from Architectural Digest editor-in-chief Margaret Russell (Shelton’s remarks begin at 3:44):
