Record Type: Person
Moore, Charles Willard (American architect, author, and educator, 1925-1993)

Note: American architect known for his affirmation of the values of pluralism, in which he is bound neither ethnically nor aesthetically to any one architectural tradition, but is guided more by instinct, eclecticism, and whimsy. He received a Ph.D in architectural history from Princeton in 1957. As a student of Jean Labatut and Louis I. Kahn, Moore developed a humanistic approach, where the role of architecture is "the making of places," ones that responds to the history of a particular location as well as to the viewer. He became aware of the power of relating space to the mind, often creating spaces within spaces, challenging the notion of "place." Moore is probably best known for his work "The Piazza d'Italia" (1976-1979), in New Orleans. The piazza makes references to the local Italian community as well as Hadrian, Schinckel, and Vignola. It comprises candy-colored columns and a fountain in the shape of a map of Italy. In the 1990s, Moore played with space ever increasingly, often featuring false windows or balconies in his interiors. American architect, author and educator. Partner, Moore, Lyndon, Turnbull, Whitaker, Berkeley, Calif., 1962-64, and MLTW Moore Turnbull, Berkeley, Calif., 1964-70; principle, Charles W. Moore Associates, 1970-75. Since 1975, Partner, Moore Grover Harper. American architect, Alexandria, Va.; principal of Moore Architects.
