The Tito Patri Collection spans the years 1955-2015. The collection is organized into four series: Personal Papers, Professional Papers, Office Records, and Project Records. The collection includes a published sketchbook of his travel drawings, regional studies and reports, and documents Patri’s career designing landscapes for residences, businesses, and cities.
Background
Born in San Francisco on April 18th 1933 to Stella Nicole Patri, a bookbinder of rare books, and Giacomo Giuseppe Patri, a prominent San Francisco artist and teacher, Tito Patri graduated with a B.S. degree from the College of Agriculture (UC Berkeley) in 1955, and went on to work for Eckbo, Royston, and Williams (1954-1957), both in San Francisco with Robert Royston and Los Angeles with Garrett Eckbo. In 1957 he worked on a few projects in the firm Patri Patri Patri with his brothers, architects Remo and Piero. Tito taught landscape architecture and environmental planning at the College of Environmental Design at UC Berkeley (1961-1970), and has lectured at a dozen universities in the United States and internationally, including the Technical University of Munich where he was a guest lecturer in landscape planning (1974-1975) and the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia (2015).
