Aria Group Architects Celebrates 30 Years
30 years ago Walt, Joe, Kathy and I started Aria Group in my home in Oak Park so we could “do our own thing”. We not only made a big first step in our own lives but were destined to affect 1,000’s of others in many ways. Over the years, we have had the pleasure to include on our staff hundreds of young architects and interior designers. Many have remained with our firm for over 20 years. Others have learned and moved on to new positions in the next stage of their careers. We have been able to create over 3,500 beautiful spaces and buildings throughout the U.S. and internationally that have positively changed the lives of our clients and their patrons. We have also been able to assist numerous non-profits with our pro bono work to help provide for those they serve. Our next generation of Principals and Associates look to the next 30 years to continue our work to make a positive difference in many lives through design.
