MIAD alumna Deb Wolf ’99 (Interior Architecture and Design) has worked as a Senior Interior Designer and Associate at LMN Architects for over two years. This year the firm was awarded the American Institute of Architects (AIA) highest honor, the AIA Firm Award.
The AIA Firm Award is given each year to a firm that has consistently practiced distinguished architecture for at least ten years.
“It is an honor for the firm to be recognized amongst our peers. There are many factors that go into the selection and through our dedication to the design process, successful broad range of projects, loyal staff, community outreach and long lasting client relationships we have captured this great honor,” said Wolf.
Wolf cites her time at MIAD in leading her to her current career, “The reason I went to MIAD was because the program mixed disciplines (design, liberal and fine arts) together to create a stronger more thoughtful maker of space and craft.”
“Robert Lynch was a pivotal force and mentor in my architectural and design discovery. He has created a strong curriculum that explores not only in the hypothetical but real world applications,” Wolf added about IA+D faculty member Lynch.
Seattle-based LMN Architects was founded in 1979, by George Loschky, Jud Marquardt and John Nesholm. The firm has completed several notable projects, including the Federal Way Performing Arts Center, the University of Washington’s Foster School of Business in Seattle and Global Center for Health Innovation in Cleveland.
