Olson Kundig Architects, Seattle

Olson Kundig Architects is among the most honored design firms in our region. In 2009, the firm was named the recipient of the American Institute of Architects' 2009 AIA Architecture Firm Award. Often referred to as the "Firm of the Year" award, it is the highest honor the AIA bestows on an architecture firm. Since the 1960s, the firm's international reputation for design excellence has been built through its commitment to urbanism and civic life, and through a worldwide collection of noteworthy projects, including places of worship, museums, academic buildings, interior design and residences. The office combines the capacity of a large firm with the intensity of a small one. Their work has been published extensively, and has been honored with numerous regional and national design awards.
