• History

    Since the founding of the firm in 1984, Design Principal Robert L. Thompson, FAIA has created a studio that is fueled by a passion for built form in the modernist style. From its earliest days, TVA set out to make its mark on the world of design while creating lasting relationships with excellent clients. Museums, residences, recreational facilities, theater complexes, interpretive centers — each commission, large or small, was a welcome opportunity to deliver exceptional service while expressing the unique vision and creative talents of the developing firm. With a growing reputation for design excellence, TVA evolved into a leading design firm in the Pacific Northwest, garnering major architectural design commissions throughout the United States and Asia.
