Julie Snow / Julie Snow Architects

Wexner Center Auditorium
October 3, 2012 - 6:00pm


Julie Snow leads a studio-based practice in Minneapolis, MN. The diverse scale and type of work is joined by a common exploration of material and detail. The studio’s interest in pragmatic and critical programmatic reflection results in innovative designs that expand our understanding of architectural performance. Design strategies engage issues of how architecture performs within each project’s social, cultural and economic context.

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, Architecture 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.

Snow recently received the American Academy of Arts and Letters Architecture Award. She has held several visiting professor positions including the Graduate School of Design at Harvard, University of Arkansas, University of Maryland, and Washington University, St. Louis. After teaching at the University of Minnesota College of Architecture and Landscape Architecture she received the Ralph Rapson Award for Distinguished Teaching.

Following the lecture, AIA Columbus and The Wexner Center for the Arts will host the AIA Columbus Design Awards. This ticketed event recognizes achievement and excellence in architectural design by Columbus architects and those within the boundaries of the AIA Columbus Chapter. Julie Snow, FAIA, will offer her critique of submitted projects, provide jury comments, and announce winners of 2012 AIA Columbus Design Awards.
