The AIA Redwood Empire NXNC Lecture Series continues on May 3 with Graham Baba Architects, a talk examining the work of the firm. Jim Graham and Brett Baba, co-founders of Graham Baba Architects, will present their work, which spans from residences to commercial buildings to community-focused projects. Best known for urban interventions and adaptive reuse projects, the firm emphasizes the experience of space and place. Their work marries an interest in revealing the value of overlooked, underutilized, and often discarded aspects of buildings and materials. Notable projects include the award-winning Washington Fruit & Produce Co. Headquarters and Cowiche Canyon Kitchen and Bar, both located in Yakima, Washington; Pybus Public Market in Wenatchee, Washington; a public market along the Columbia River for the Port of Vancouver; a new public plaza for the city of Yakima; and restaurants for James Beard Award winning chefs. Recognitions include dozens of design awards (local, regional, and national awards from the American Institute of Architects) and a wide range of media appearances (Luxe, C3, The New York Times, Architect, The Huffington Post, The Plan, and The Seattle Times, among others).
