Our Minneapolis Studio Receives 2019 AIA Minnesota Firm Award

This prestigious biennial award is the highest distinction bestowed by AIA Minnesota

Our Minneapolis studio has been honored with the AIA Minnesota Firm Award. This significant award recognizes an AIA Minnesota member firm “that has made outstanding contributions to the advancement of the profession of architecture.”

Our 65-person interdisciplinary studio practices in an innovative, boundary-pushing, future-oriented way and “is bridging disciplines to drive innovative thinking, build leadership, and engage communities,” says former AIA Minnesota president and nominator Meredith Hayes Gordon, AIA.

To us, the award acknowledges our dedication to sustainable innovation, research, design excellence and social responsibility, and most importantly, that these core values are embodied in our work.

Beyond project work, many members of the studio are engaged in causes that give back to the community, from teaching and mentorship to social and environmental activism. Their personal commitment and passion bring energy into our studio’s practice. We are honored to be selected for this prestigious award, and look forward to many more years of forward-thinking, meaningful design.

As leaders in our industry looking towards the next decade, we are compelled to address the serious issues facing our planet through the power of design. This video is our design manifesto for the next decade. It is our call to action for the industry, spoken through the many voices that have helped us earn this recognition.
