Having a combined work experience of over 30 years on signature museum, civic and institutional projects worldwide, the founding members, Hiroshi Okamoto and Bing Lin joined their expertise in collaboration forming OLI Architecture PLLC in 2010.
With a vision towards the future, accompanied by a vast disciplinary understanding of the built environment, and respect of the specific cultural parameters of each project, the firm offers full service architectural design. OLI’s specialty expertise consists of civic and cultural building design, museography, exhibition design, education, healthcare, and custom residential design.
The firm’s approach is to investigate the specific nature of each project to craft a design response to meet the aspirations of the client, stakeholders, and the detailed requirements of the future occupants. OLI transforms these contextual studies using physical, digital, and parametric models, and computational analyses to create the unique tectonics of each project. These are then articulated with local construction practices and standards to create a unique building that merges with the cultural environment of its site.
OLI is a design office with broad international experience working in collaboration with various clients and municipalities, bringing their vision to fruition through award winning, singular architectural environments. Core services offered include Programming, Planning, Architectural Concept Design through Construction Documentation and Construction Administration.
