Bohlin Cywinski Jackson

Bohlin Cywinski Jackson is an architecture practice of six studios across the country focused on designing places that inspire connection and wonder. Founded in 1965, the firm has offices in Seattle, San Francisco, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and Wilkes-Barre.

Bohlin Cywinski Jackson’s 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. Our full-service office in Seattle was established in 1990 and has been instrumental in the firm’s record of design achievement, especially in the design of civic buildings.

We work with you to understand the nature of your unique circumstance—the people, place, and materials that inform each design—to help translate your community’s collective aspirations into built environments that are greater than the sum of their parts. The resulting architecture feels simultaneously grounded and transcendent, carefully crafted to embody resiliency and adapt to an ever-changing world.

Our culture values humility and collaboration. We ask you questions and listen deeply rather than approaching design opportunities with preconceptions. Most importantly, we seek to inspire one another and push the boundaries of what is possible to preserve our natural environment, advance our craft, and help you achieve your goals.
