Bohlin Cywinski Jackson is a United States-based architectural practice that was founded in 1965 in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania by Peter Bohlin and Richard Powell.
Bohlin Cywinski Jackson is an architecture practice of six studios across the country focused on designing places that inspire connection and wonder. 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.
We are open-minded and curious, expanding our understanding of what architecture can be. We act as pollinators, bringing innovative voices to the table with you to explore how humane, timeless design can serve as a catalyst for transformation. Our firm’s history has been shaped by our work with visionary clients who we have guided through a design process that results in spaces that redefine how we live, work, learn, and gather.
Our culture values humility and collaboration. We will 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.
