Full Details

Thom Mayne founded his now internationally renowned firm Morphosis in 1972 as a collective practice of architecture, urbanism, and design, rooted in rigorous research and innovation. Working globally across a broad range of project types and scales, Morphosis is recognized for its innovative and sustainable designs for cultural, civic, and academic institutions, including the Bloomberg Center at Cornell Tech, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, Emerson College, Casablanca Finance City Tower, Beirut New Embassy Campus, the academic building for The Cooper Union, and the recently completed Orange County Museum of Art.

Mayne’s distinguished honors include the Pritzker Prize (2005) and the AIA Gold Medal (2013). He served on the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities under President Obama. With Morphosis, Thom Mayne has been the recipient of 29 Progressive Architecture Awards, over 120 American Institute of Architecture Awards and numerous other design recognitions. SFMOMA, MoMA, and Chicago Art Institute, among others, hold artworks produced throughout his career.
