John Friedman Alice Kimm Architects (JFAK) was founded in 1996, when John and Alice recognized a shared aesthetic and social vision for architecture. With the belief that architecture has the power to transform people’s lives, JFAK creates environments and buildings that encourage creative and social interaction, sustain the environment, and catalyze positive change. The firm’s work spans schools, university centers, commercial ventures, housing, and public space installations. While embracing technology, each project is approached as an opportunity to artfully and sustainably enhance its cultural context. Recent works include Roberts Pavilion at Claremont McKenna College and La Kretz Innovation Campus in Downtown Los Angeles.
