In recent years, design practice has undergone a radical expansion in scope, and therefore, in possibilities. Expectations for design are no longer confined to a powerful aesthetic experience or a single efficient functional operation. Today architecture is expected to work with a layered context of cultural, economic, historic, social, ecological and political systems.
Julie Snow leads a studio-based practice in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The practice has been recognized with numerous awards including the AIA Honor Award, Holcim North American Bronze Award, Progressive Architecture Design Award, the Chicago Athenaeum’s American and International Architecture Awards, Architect Magazine Annual Design Review, the Design Distinction Award from I.D. magazine, several Business Week/Architectural Record Awards and several US General Services Administration's Design Excellence Awards. The work of the studio was exhibited at the Chicago Architectural Foundation.
Julie Snow has held several visiting professor positions including the Graduate School of Design at Harvard, USC, and Washington University, St. Louis, as well as teaching at the University of Minnesota College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture where she received the Ralph Rapson Award for Distinguished Teaching. She was selected as an "Emerging Voice” by the New York Architectural League in 1998. In 2005, Princeton Architectural Press published the first monograph on the studio’s work in its series on emerging designers from around the world. In 2011 she was awarded the Architecture Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters.
1. Re-frame architecture’s context to include economic, cultural, political, social, historic and ecological systems.
2. Maximize collaboration among disciplines seeking integration of systems into effective design strategies.
4. Achieve design excellence while shaping livable sustainable communities and buildings
