FIRM HISTORY

Duda|Paine Architects was founded in 1997 on the complementary strengths and over thirty-year working relationship of Turan Duda, FAIA, and Jeffrey Paine, AIA, who together spent nearly two decades at Cesar Pelli & Associates. The duo brings a dynamic melding of poetic, artful design and practical, reality based solutions to the most challenging building projects.

Duda|Paine’s process is founded in discovery and involves achieving a highly nuanced understanding of their clients and the influences essential for organizations to thrive. Rather than considering typology and style, the firm relies on methods of thinking and working that are transformative rather than prescriptive.

Duda|Paine’s designs have become a catalyst for organizations and institutions to communicate their purpose and vision. The firm enlightens clients, user groups and project teams to recognize and realize the full meaning, value and impact of design on business and institutional success, prosperity and purpose.
