Maryann Thompson Architects was founded by Maryann Thompson in October of 2000. Prior to that Maryann had been a senior/founding partner in the firm Thompson and Rose.Maryann Thompson Architects is a Cambridge based architecture firm that offers a wide range of services to public and private clients. We specialize in architecture that is regionally driven and that attempts to heighten a sense of its immediate site and landscape, that emphasizes the "promenade" - or the direct human experience of the project - as the generative principle behind the design, and that employs a high level of craft and natural materials. Maryann received a 1998 AIA Young Architects Award, which states, "In practice for less than a decade, she has made a significant contribution to architecture. Her work reconnects architecture with the landscape and celebrates tectonics, materials and a poetic approach to design." The firm's staff comes from diverse backgrounds, including architecture, landscape architecture, planning, interior design \ and the visual arts. Maryann has degrees in both architecture and landscape architecture, and she brings to the practice of architecture a respect for an interdisciplinary approach to design. We believe in integrating planning, programming and design in a holistic, consensus building approach to projects.Maryann's work has received a 2003 AIA New England Design Honor Award; a 1998 AIA National Honor Award; several 2002, 2001, and 1997 AIA New England Design Awards; a 2002 AIA Connecticut Design Award; 2002, 2001, 2000, 1998, 1997, 1996, 1994 BSA Honor Awards for Design Excellence; 2002, 2001, and 1996 BSA Design Awards; 2002 and 1997 I.D.
