Full Description

Robert L Thompson, FAIA, is founding partner of the Portland-based firm TVA Architects. He was responsible for the design of some of the most prominent buildings in Oregon during the late twentieth- and early twenty-first centuries. His projects have ranged from corporate campuses, air hangars, and government and public spaces, to high-rise office towers and single-family residences. Known for a signature brand of pristine, often white-toned late-twentieth century modernism, Thompson was influenced by the works of modern masters, including Le Corbusier, Charles Gwathmey, Yoshio Taniguchi, and Richard Meier. He formed TVA Architects in 1984 with then partner Ned Vaivoda and built an internationally recognized 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 had been honored with scores of local, national, and international awards for excellence in design. This lavishly illustrated monograph, filled with full-color photography and detailed plans, forms a compilation of work that celebrates Thompson’s influence across architecture in design over several decades.
