San Franisco-based Leddy Maytum Stacy Architects (LMSA) has been chosen as the recipient of the 2017 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Architecture Firm Award.

“Their passion for addressing some of the profession’s thorniest issues including regenerative design, universal access, social equity and housing for the most disadvantaged has been consistent and impressive,” wrote Bob Berkebile, FAIA Emeritus, in a recommendation letter.

Founded in 1983 by principals William Leddy, FAIA, Marsha Maytum, FAIA, and Richard Stacy, FAIA, LMSA has since carried out its mission of addressing issues of resource depletion, climate change, historic preservation, and social equity in a variety of building types.
