Please join Bohlin Cywinski Jackson principal, Robert Miller, FAIA, and designer and UTSOA alumna, Lauren Mullane, for a presentation on the firm's work, culture, and hiring practices on Monday, February 27 at 11:30am. The event will be held in Goldsmith Hall 2.308 (Dean's Conference Room).
From www.bcj.com: "Bohlin Cywinski Jackson is noted for elegant and humane design, ranging from modest houses to large academic, civic, cultural, commercial, and corporate buildings. Our principals and staff are deeply committed to active collaboration with our clients, emphasizing thorough research and analysis of each situation's particular human, technical, and economic circumstances. The result is exceptional architecture that resonates within its place. From the beginning, energy efficiency and environmental sensitivity have been integral to the firm’s design culture. We continue to innovate; combining advanced building systems to harvest a site’s distinct climate and place to make the most of sun for light and heat, wind for ventilation, and the land for insulation. We view sustainable design as the right thing to do ethically, but also as an opportunity to make a richer, more powerful architecture. Since 1965, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson has received more than 625 regional, national, and international design awards, including three Committee on the Environment Top Ten Green Project awards from the American Institute of Architects (AIA). We are also the recipients of the AIA Architecture Firm Award, the most prestigious honor bestowed upon an architectural practice by the Institute. In addition, our founding principal, Peter Bohlin, was awarded the AIA Gold Medal, the highest honor an individual American architect can receive."
Robert E. Miller, FAIA: Bohlin Cywinski Jackson’s commitment to a wide range of project types and scales initially drew Robert to its Wilkes‐Barre office. His initial assignments at Bohlin Cywinski Jackson reflected this diversity including a birdhouse, private residential, university buildings, and master planning. In 1990 Robert moved to Seattle to assist in the competition for the Pacific Rim Residence completed as a joint venture with James Cutler Architects. Robert manages the Seattle office of Bohlin Cywinski Jackson and provides oversight, coordination and leadership for many of the office projects. Robert has championed both sustainable design practices and regional sensitivity throughout the offices work, including the Pacific Rim Residence, the AIA National Award winning Ballard Library, the CoorsTek Center of Applied Science and Engineering and Marquez Hall at the Colorado School of Mines, and Lightbox—a residence for architectural photographer Nic Lehoux. Robert’s lifelong interests in social issues, alternative construction, renewable energy, and industrial design are reflected in his holistic approach to architecture. He believes strongly that thoughtful innovation and integration are the future of successful sustainable design.
