The 2009 Walton Critic and Professor in Residence (Apr 1-5, 2009) . The Catholic University of America — School of Architecture and Planning (SSCS Concentration)
Antoine Predock, 2006 recipient of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Gold Medal -- the highest honor conferred by the AIA on an architect whose significant body of work has had a lasting influence on the theory and practice of architecture. He is the principal of Antoine Predock Architect PC, based in Albuquerque, N.M. Predock's U.S. projects include the La Luz community in Albuquerque, the Nelson Fine Arts Center at Arizona State University, the Tang Teaching Museum and Art Gallery at Skidmore College, and the San Diego Padres' Petco Park, whose design reinvents the concept of a ballpark as a garden rather than solely a sports complex. His international work includes the National Palace Museum Southern Branch in Southern Taiwan and the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, both of which are currently in design phases.

During his stay at CUArch, architect Predock directed an intense 3 day workshop, entitled "Examining Sacred Space in the 21st Century." He worked with the students in the graduate Sacred Space and Digital Technologies joint studio, gave a lecture and led reviews and discussions of student design. His public lecture took place on April 3, 2010 at 6:00pm and was titled "Carving."
Antoine Predock's visit was made possible by the Clarence Walton Fund for Catholic Architecture. He was the very first Walton Critic and to be followed by Craig W. Hartman (2010), Juhani Pallasmaa (2011) and Alberto Campo Baeza (2012).
