Description, Philosophy, History

Thirty-five years ago, Kim Olson started a firm based on some simple ideas: that buildings can serve as a bridge between nature, culture, and people, and that inspiring surroundings have a positive effect on people''s lives. Today the firm has taken those ideas to new and creative levels. The firm's work includesmuseum, college and university buildings, places of worship, and residences (often for art collectors). Together the four partners, Jim Olson, Rick Sundberg, Tom Kundig and Scott Allen, have created an office with an international reputation that is extensively recognized in publications and awards. Among the firm's recent design awards are national and regional honors from the American Institute of Architects and an American Architecture Award fromThe Chicago Athenaeum. The partners, who often lecture on the topic of design, also serve as guest critics for university design studios and as jurors for design award programs.
