Robert L. Thompson, FAIA, is the founder and lead design principal of the Portland-based firm TVA Architects, a firm that has built a foundation of collaboration, innovation, and conservation through beautiful design. He is responsible for the design of many of the most prominent buildings throughout Oregon and the Pacific Northwest. TVA Architects creatively transforms their clients’ needs and aspirations into elegantly understated works of meaningful architecture, meticulously detailed and impeccably crafted.
The projects documented in this book coincide with the fortieth anniversary of this celebrated architect and his body of work as a designer and innovator.
He founded TVA Architects in 1984 and built an internationally recognised practice, starting in the Pacific Northwest. In 1993, at the age of thirty-nine, Thompson was the youngest architect in America to be inducted into the American Institute of Architects’ College of Fellows for his contribution to the profession. Thompson and TVA Architects have been honored with scores of local, national, and international awards for excellence in design.
His projects have ranged from major corporate campuses, high-rise office towers and condominium towers, sports and recreational facilities, retail and cultural projects as well as multi- and single-family residences. This lavishly illustrated monograph, filled with full-colour photography and detailed plans, forms a compilation of select work that celebrates Thompson’s influence across architecture over several decades.
