Suyama Peterson Deguchi (SPD) strives to create spaces that evoke a quiet, emotional response. They believe that the use of elemental forms and minimal means can result in architecture that has nuance, depth and richness. Founded by George Suyama FAIA in 1971, SPD is an architecture firm based in Seattle, Washington. Ric Peterson, FAIA, joined George as partner in 1983 and Jay Deguchi became a partner in 2002. The firm specializes in northwest contemporary design and offers a comprehensive range of services from architecture to interiors and furniture design. SPD’s Belltown studio houses architectural offices for our professional staff, as well as Suyama Space, a renowned art installation gallery, and 3×10 [Three by Ten], their furniture and accessory showroom.The exhibition and opening/conversation are free and open to the public and also help celebrate the centennial in the Department of Architecture. Continuing education and IDP credits are available for attendance.

Home Base presents an intimate portrait of architect Jim Olson (UW ’63) and his architectural legacy, from his first project in 1959 to his ongoing work for clients across the globe. At the age of eighteen, Olson began work on a bunkhouse for his family in Longbranch, Washington. Since then, Olson has continued to expand the small structure into both a private retreat and a touch point for his work worldwide. Home Base documents the design and redesign of this project over 56 years through a never-before-seen collection of photos, architectural models, sketches and selected ephemera – and the subsequent evolution of his coinciding – and still thriving – architectural career. It focuses on Jim at four junctures in his career – at age 18, 41, 61, and 74 – with each iteration marking a point of evolution in his artistic journey.
