Rob Wellington Quigley, FAIA – Creative and Technical Director

Rob Quigley is a nationally recognized architect whose work has garnered more than 60 design awards from the American Institute of Architects (AIA). In 2005, the AIA California Council honored Rob with the Maybeck Award—California’s equivalent of the Gold Medal—for three decades of architectural design excellence.

A native of Southern California, Rob earned his Bachelor’s of Architecture at the University of Utah in 1969. Upon graduation he entered the Peace Corps, where he developed his skills designing and building affordable housing in underserved areas of Chile. After two years of service, Rob settled in San Diego and opened his own architecture and planning firm. Shaped by his early experiences, he became a pioneer in the design of architecturally significant yet affordable housing for the working poor.

Rob was also an early leader in the sustainable design movement, designing solar-powered homes in the 1970s—long before “green” became an industry buzzword. His work is driven by a deep sense of responsibility to conserve natural resources.

A longtime student of the public realm, Rob has focused his recent efforts on civic and academic buildings. Signature projects include San Diego’s new Central Library, the Leslie Shao-ming Sun Field Station at Stanford University, the Seventrees Community Center and Branch Library in San José, Ocean Discovery Institute’s “Living Lab” in San Diego, and Bascom Library and Community Center in San Jose.
