Dr. Petrucci's design and research focuses on what he calls "iAmenity InfrastructureTM" which develops new public-private urban infrastructures that create identity and facilitate multiple scales of public use within the contemporary city. He is the founder and principal of A-I-R [Architecture-Infrastructure-Research] Inc.. and the winner of a Progressive Architecture Award from Architecture Magazine for his project "GLUE: Generic Landscapes Urban Environments" (commercial corridor revitalization strategies along Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale Arizona), and the NCARB Prize for his project "Stripscape: Pedestrian Amenities on 7th Avenue." He teaches courses on applied research and design collaboration in the built environment.
