BART PRINCE (1947-)

Prince was born in New Mexico and graduated from Highland HS and later Arizona State University. He opened his own practice in Albuquerque in 1973. He counts Frank Lloyd Wright, Antoni Gaudi, and Bruce Goff as his architectural inspirations. He was a former student and assistant to Goff and was associate architect on the Pavilion for Japanese Art in Los Angeles County Museum of Art from 1978 to 1988. Prince's great-grandfather was L. Bradford Prince, Governor of the New Mexico Territory from 1889 to 1893. Bio adapted from Wikipedia.

1977 - The Robert Hanna Studio Addition, aka the J.R. Willis House, aka Snail House, aka Casas de Suenos, 310 Rio Grande Boulevard SW, Albuquerque NM. Original house constructed by artist J.R. Willis in 1938. Sold in 1960 to Robert Hanna, who commissioned Prince to design an elevated studio rising above the open entryway between the studio and the house, formerly Willis' narrow driveway from Rio Grande Boulevard SW into the courtyard. The result of Prince's efforts is a glazed tile and brick-faced space set atop the passageway, its curved form "derived from the spatial manipulations of a circle," resulting in a "sub-divided cylinder" locally referred to as the "Snail House."
