Allison Williams

Founder - AGWms_studio

Allison Grace Williams FAIA is an architect and has amassed an international portfolio of large scale civic, corporate, cultural and research facilities. In practice at SOM, Perkins+Will and AECOM, Williams’ inventive instincts, collaborative drive and inspiring, interdisciplinary design approach have generated authentic, relevant buildings. The work poetically bridges between culture, technology and the environment and conveys the values and traditions of the audience and place. In 2017, with this 35-year foundation in corporate practice, and from an uncommon perspective, Williams created AGWms_studio as the first step toward the Next: To attract provocative design partnerships that prioritize art form and design process in relevant, cross-disciplinary venues and to formalize academic involvements. Williams is an Adjunct Lecturer at Stanford University, and a frequent academic critic and design competition juror. A Loeb Fellow at Harvard Graduate School of Design, Allison earned both her B.A. in the Practice of Art and M.Arch (and named 2015 Distinguished Alumnus in Architecture) from University of California, Berkeley. Williams is featured in a curated exhibition Celebrating Excellent Black Architects, as part of the London Festival of Architecture 2017, and in 2016 by Architizer News, From a to Zaha: 26 Women Who Changed Architecture.
