When you hire an architect you get much more than the voice and perspective of one individual. In the case of Olson Kundig Architects, you get the collective experience of an award-winning firm that has been around decades and done quite a wide range of projects. One of the unique aspects of Olson Kundig Architects is the culture. And with culture comes tradition.Our project is like many others that Olson Kundig Architects takes on in that it will involve artists and craftspeople, it will feature sustainable design elements, and at some point in the project’s life cycle it will be the subject of one of the firm's Thursday Night Crits.
