Eduardo Catalano's iconic Raleigh house (built in 1954, demolished in 2001) was to have been reconstructed as a pavilion on the NC State campus. In 2004, Catalano proposed to provide a financial gift to the university for construction of the pavilion, as part of his architectural legacy. The pavilion was originally planned to be constructed on the eastern end of the Court of North Carolina, but when this was announced, there was strong opposition against the location by many members of the campus community. Catalano withdrew his offer in May 2005. A later proposal to construct the pavilion on Centennial Campus also did not come to fruition.

Peter Sugar earned his BA at the Bartlett School of Architecture in London in 1955. He then trained at MIT (Master of Architecture, 1960) and later worked as an architect with Eduardo Catalano from 1968-1977.

Having received scholarships to pursue studies in the United States, Catalano relocated to attend the University of Pennsylvania and Harvard University. He graduated in 1944 and 1945 respectively with a Master of Architecture degree. At Harvard, Catalano studied under two masters of modernist architecture, Walter Gropius and Marcel Breuer.
