Jerry Garcia LEED AP Principal

Since joining Olson Kundig in 2006 and throughout his tenure in Seattle, principal Jerry Garcia has been an active instigator in the dialogue between architecture, art and the community at large. Working across a broad range of project types and scales, from 200 square-foot cabins on wheels to high-rises around the world, Jerry’s work has received numerous design awards and appeared in publications such as Architecture, Architectural Record, and Art+Auction. For Jerry, “Good architecture rewards inspection – the deeper you look, the more you see.”

Jerry has collaborated with world-renowned artists such as Anish Kapoor, Jaume Plensa and Doug Aitken on installations in both the public and private realms. He has also been an invited speaker at art fairs such as Art Basel, and has served as a guest critic for architectural programs in Chile, Mexico and beyond. A strong advocate for the power of discussion between creative disciplines, Jerry has served on the board of the Seattle Art Museum’s Contemporary Arts Council and as a commissioner for the Seattle Arts Commission. He is also curator of The Ledge, Olson Kundig’s art exhibition space, which is situated on a shelf between the desks of Jerry and founding partner Jim Olson. The Ledge has featured a host of prominent contemporary artists, among them three Whitney Biennial participants, who have created site specific work for the venue. “Intimacy provides insight into artwork,” Jerry notes. “With The Ledge, we wanted to create an opportunity for us to come to know work in a more significant way than is possible with a singular gallery or museum visit.”
