Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen AIA Firm Award

by Brian Libby

Since Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen Architects was founded, the Seattle firm has sought to integrate contemporary architectural forms into the natural settings of the Pacific Northwest, employing a combination of sensitivity and efficiency that can be recognized as sustainable design.

Jim Olson established the firm in 1971 on two principles that continue to inform its work today: that buildings can serve as a bridge between nature and culture, and that inspiring surroundings have a positive effect on people's lives.

Olson's success in growing a firm that creates works of exceptional form and texture has been recognized by the American Institute of Architects with its 2009 AIA Architecture Firm Award.

The AIA's highest honor for a firm recognizes a practice that has consistently produced distinguished architecture for at least ten years. Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen joins such other recipients as KieranTimberlake, Miller Hull, Gensler, Gwathmey Siegel, and Roche-Dinkeloo.
