CHICAGO (HEADQUARTER OFFICE), BERLIN, DOHA AND SHANGHÁI
JAHN is a multinational group of professionals sharing the same passion for Architecture, Design and Technology. We operate from our 4 four international offices: Chicago, Berlin, Doha and Shanghai. The diversity of our work and the collaborative spirit of our environment stimulate a cross-fertilization of ideas. Our architects and designers collaborate with the most innovative engineers, fabricators and builders to create architecture of authenticity and integrity. Our work addresses urban responsibility, performance, engineering synthesis, attention to detail and sustainability by design.
RAAD, the department of Responsive Architecture – Advanced Design, has been established to further push the boundaries of research and design within JAHN. Challenging the given notions of design, RAAD acts to advance the future of architecture; a future which must fuse technical innovations with a responsive and humanitarian approach. It is this collaboration between JAHN and RAAD that will continue to precipitate distinctive solutions such as the SPACECRAFT pavilion.
FRANCISCO GONZALEZ-PULIDO, shares design leadership of the firm’s work with Founder Helmut Jahn.
In his approach, Gonzalez-Pulido strives for minimizing building design to the essentials, so logic, lightness and performance prevail. He approaches each project with the belief that the architectural and engineering ideas and principles are equal in challenging and ultimately transforming a place or an experience.
He has a degree in architecture from ITESM (Monterrey Institute of Technology and Higher Education) and a Master’s degree from Harvard University Graduate School of Design.
With more than fifteen years with the firm, Gonzalez-Pulido has won recognition for his efforts, including being named one of the Ten Most Promising Mexican Architects by OBRAS magazine.
Gonzalez-Pulido has lectured at universities, museums and architectural forums in Mexico, Spain, Korea and the United States. He co-taught an integrated design studio with Werner Sobek at the Illinois Institute of Technology’s College of Architecture in Chicago.
