2012 Interview with Kate Walker

 

HARRY CHARLES WOLF III, FAIA (1935-)

Harry Wolf was born in Charlotte.  He graduated in 1958 from the Georgia Tech School of Architecture.  Then he went to MIT from 1958-1960. 

After working for a few firms including Odell and Graves & Toy, he founded Wolf Johnson Associates in Charlotte in 1966.  That became Wolf Associates in late 1966.  After doing extensive work in the Charlotte banking industry, Wolf moved to New York in 1983 and then to Los Angeles in 1988. 

He appeared briefly in the movie Concert of Wills about the making of the Getty Center.  His office is now in West Hollywood CA.

Most notably in Raleigh, he designed the 1978 addition to the NCSU School of Design, now called Kamphoefner Hall, above photo by Anne Pearlstein. Wolf has won 30+ awards from the national AIA including their Honor Award five times.  He has received one major AIA Design Award, on average, for about every year since 1966.
