Known best for timeless designs that balance the romance of traditional architecture with the ideals of modernism, Patrick Ahearn Architect today proudly launched ​Patrick Ahearn's Studio free of charge to architecture and design enthusiasts worldwide.

“In more than 40 years of practice, I’ve learned that good architecture has the power to improve lives. By making this Studio course complimentary, I am able to teach others the reasons how and why, and inspire future generations of architects without any sort of economic barrier,” said the firm’s founder and namesake Patrick Ahearn. “It’s my way of paying it forward after learning so much over the years.”

In 15 online episodes narrated and taught by Ahearn himself, participants learn about the planned communities that inspired Ahearn’s early career and are exposed to fundamentals like the basics of density and scale, architectural detailing, and how zoning dictates design. With segments on client communication, branding, and presentation, the Studio aims to give future architects an idea of what it might be like to work in the field while keeping Ahearn’s philosophy of architecture for the greater good at the forefront.

“Patrick and I have worked together for more than 15 years, and we live and breathe these principles every day,” said Managing Principal Mike Tartamella. “As a firm, we consider the fabric of a neighborhood, the spaces between buildings, and enhancing the public experience as we design. The purpose and motivation behind our approach are shared in the Studio.”

For those who seek creative inspiration, love architecture, and aspire to build their own brand, the Studio provides a springboard to begin that journey without financial investment. All episodes of Patrick Ahearn’s Studio are streaming now at
