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's firm then merged with Bernard Cywinski's Philadelphia-based architectural practice in 1979.[1] It is recognized for its distinguished portfolio of residential, university, commercial, cultural and government projects.

Design[edit]

Bohlin Cywinski Jackson is known for emphasizing a strong relationship between buildings and their physical surroundings. They were an early advocate of sustainable design and subsequently received national awards from the American Institute of Architects Committee on the Environment.[2] Their buildings include the Liberty Bell Center,[3][4] the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue in New York City,[5] Seattle City Hall[6] and the Discovery and Visitor Center at Grand Teton National Park.[7][8]

Architects[edit]

Current Principal architects of the firm include Peter Bohlin, Jon Jackson, Frank Grauman, William Loose, Cornelius Reid, Karl Backus, Gregory Mottola, Roxanne Sherbeck, Robert Miller and Raymond Calabro.

History[edit]

The modern firm was created in 1979 through the merger of the firms of Philadelphia-based architect Bernard Cywinski and Peter Bohlin, whose architectural firm was based in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, at the time.[1] According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Bohlin and Cywinski had been drawn together through a shared interest in sketching .[citation needed] Bernard Cywinski died in 2011, at the age of 71.[9]

Awards[edit]

In 1994, the practice received the American Institute of Architects Firm Award,[10] which recognizes the design work of an entire firm. In 2010, founding partner Peter Bohlin, FAIA received the AIA Gold Medal, the highest honor given by the American Institute of Architects to an individual.[11] In 2013, BCJ was the recipient of the Architectural Record Good Design is Good Business Lifetime Achievement Architecture Award.[12] The firm has received numerous awards for the designs of libraries, visitor centers, housing, and sustainable design.[13] In 2012 they won the EuroShop RetailDesign award for the Uniqlo flagship store in Shanghai based on the strength of its spectacular dynamic merchandising. The centre of the building contains the main attraction: a striking 20-metre high atrium with "flying mannequins" moving from top to bottom at a pace set by music.[14]
