Bohlin Cywinski Jackson, founded in 1965, has offices in Wilkes-Barre, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Seattle, and San Francisco. Our practice of architecture offers a broad range of related services and our approach emphasizes thorough research and analysis of the particular circumstances of each situation. We are alive to the subtleties of place – man-made or natural, to the varied natures of client and user, to the character of institutions, and the full range of environmental issues. Our work is known for exceptional design, for its commitment to the particularity of place and user, and for an extraordinary aesthetic based on a quiet rigor, which is both intellectual and intuitive.
The firm is noted for elegant, humane, and sustainable design ranging from modest houses and recreational facilities to large academic, cultural, civic, and corporate buildings. Our problem-solving approach emphasizes thorough research and analysis of each project’s unique human, technical, and economic circumstances.
In an essay about our firm’s work, Gold Medal winning architect Joseph Esherick comments, “what is remarkable is the degree to which Bohlin Cywinski Jackson achieves the highest possible technical standards of construction, of energy management, of sophisticated program requirements, and still preserves such freshness and openness.”
Our architecture has received more than 580 regional, national, and international awards for design, including three American Institute of Architects (AIA) Top Ten Green Project Awards. We are the recipients the AIA Architecture Firm Award, the most prestigious honor bestowed upon an architectural practice by the Institute. In 2010, Peter Bohlin, our founding principal, was awarded the AIA Gold Medal, the highest honor an individual architect can receive.
