Peter John Spillis, AIA Emeritus – December 5, 1932 – March 24, 2021

It is with great sadness that we share the passing of our dear friend and long-time member, Peter J. Spillis, AIA Emeritus.

Born in Miami to Greek immigrants and early Miami settlers, John and Melpo Spillis, he graduated Miami High (’50) and studied architecture at University of Florida (’54), followed by service in the U.S. Army, Counter Intelligence Corp, during the Korean conflict (’56). Upon completing his service, Pete joined the pioneering architectural firm of Pancoast, Ferendino, Skeels & Burnham.

In 1970, the firm became Ferendino Grafton Spillis Candela, and in 1977, Spillis Candela & Partners. The firm grew to be one of the largest and most significant architectural and engineering firms in the U.S., with offices throughout Florida and in Atlanta, Washington, D.C., New York City and Los Angeles. It later merged into AECOM.
