Florian Architects

We believe that architecture is a collaborative art. We actively involve our clients and builders in the design process. The image of a project is selected by the owner from a menu of potential images or concepts generated by our office as a starting point for synthesis and refinement. Contractors participate in the budgeting and quality control of each project.

Because we believe that architecture is a communicating art, brand identity must express the character and message to be conveyed to a target audience. Our work is therefore stylistically diverse. We believe a style must be appropriate before it is correct; no single style is more correct than any other. The scales and types of projects that we do are also diverse.

For Florian Architects quality design is not only the product of good proportion, form, color, and use. Conceptual design drawings, client participation, project management, construction drawings and observation are all essential to the realization of great design. No one aspect is more important than another. We enjoy the complete process, not just conceptual design.

Exhibit Art Institute of Chicago

"A Day in the Country: Impressionism and the French Landscape" represents the first time the Art Institute of Chicago hired a professional architectural firm to design a temporary exhibit for the museum. Co-organized by the Art Institute of Chicago, the Los Angeles County Museum, and the Orsay Museum in Paris, the show featured 128 Impressionist landscape paintings. A principal underlying the design of the 20,000-square-foot installation was that the observation of paintings does not preclude a powerful architectural setting. Arranged by subject, the theme of each section was underscored by colossal abstracted spaces and forms that create a context for the paintings without tying them to the present or the past. Award: AIA Chicago, Citation of Merit, 1986 Photography: M. Elizabeth Ernst
