2009 AIA Architecture Firm Award

Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects has received the American Institute of Architects 2009 AIA Architecture Firm Award. The annual AIA Architecture Firm Award often referred to as the Firm of the Year award is the highest honor the AIA bestows on an architecture firm and recognizes a practice that consistently has produced distinguished architecture for at least ten years.

Principals Jim Olson, FAIA; Rick Sundberg, FAIA; Tom Kundig, FAIA; Scott Allen, AIA; Kirsten Murray, AIA and Alan Maskin are known for their hands-on project involvement; deliberate efforts to share their knowledge with firm members, students, interns, and clients; and intense collaboration with artists and craftspeople.

The firms commitment to sustainable design finds its roots in the firm Olson founded in Seattle in 1971, which he based on two principles: buildings can serve as a bridge between nature and culture, and inspiring surroundings have a positive effect on peoples lives. Carrying that concept into the firm, the principals remain committed to a democratic and populist office culture.
