James Wines is founder and president of SITE, a New York-based architectural studio chartered in 1970. Through his multidisciplinary practice, Wines develops site-specific structures that engage information about the environment, including buildings, public spaces, environmental art, landscapes, master plans, interiors, video productions, graphics, and product designs.

This emphasis on context has attracted international attention since 1970 and has influenced the design of environmentally oriented buildings, interiors, gardens, and public spaces. He has designed over 150 projects for private and municipal clients in eleven countries. Wines is a Professor of Architecture at Pennsylvania State University and author of several books including De-Architecture and Green Architecture. Twenty-two monographs have been published on his drawings and built works. He continues to research environmental issues in architecture and write and lecture on this subject internationally.
