John Cuningham, FAIA, invites MNSAH to his offices overlooking the Mississippi River for a talk about his career and the firm he founded, Cuningham Group Architecture. Following his studies at the Harvard Graduate School of Design under Walter Gropius, John worked for James Stageberg in Minneapolis until he began his own firm. Founded in 1968, the firm has achieved an international presence with more than four hundred employees around the world. This year the firm celebrates its 50th anniversary.

John will discuss projects that range from the Cross House in Stillwater, his first project after founding his firm, to the Alpensia Resort, the site of the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea. He has also been involved in historic preservation projects, including the renovation of the Itasca complex, one of the first warehouse conversion projects in the Minneapolis Warehouse District.

John says that the firm’s guiding philosophy over the last fifty years has been that architecture is more than shelter; it also has the capacity to “uplift the human spirit.”
