Founded in 1965, with studios in Wilkes-Barre, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Seattle, San Francisco, and New York, Bohlin Cywinski Jackson’s nine principals and staff of 120+ collaborate and design as one integrated practice. Committed to constantly growing and evolving to better serve our clients, each other, and our planet, we bring a holistic approach to architecture, interior design, planning, and adaptive re-use. Our sustainable, site-specific designs have received more than 750 regional, national, and international awards for design, including four American Institute of Architects (AIA) COTE Top Ten Awards. Our practice is also the recipient of the AIA Architecture Firm Award, the most prestigious honor bestowed upon an architectural practice by the Institute.
Diversity of expertise is a hallmark of our practice. From residential to academic, civic to workplace—we are agile, well-rounded architects and designers who bring a broader view of what is possible, leveraging our varied experience to be specialists in what’s most important: designing places that feel humane and transcendent.
Peter Bohlin and Richard Powell founded Bohlin Cywinski Jackson in Northeastern Pennsylvania, in 1965. Throughout the history of the firm, his leadership has established a culture of thoughtful, thorough design thinking, rooted in both broad conceptual thinking and detailed expression.
