Anne Fougeron, FAIA
Over three decades of distinguished practice, Anne Fougeron has remained clear: architecture can change lives—both over time and in the moment—and every individual from every background deserves access to design’s transformative potential. Since founding her eponymous firm in 1986, she has demonstrated this principle time and again, establishing a model of practice dedicated to making the dignity and inspiration of good design available to all.
At the heart of this activist mission is Anne’s belief that great architecture can, and should be, part of the political world—and that principles of design are inextricably rooted in the principles of democracy. A building that is vivid and full of life communicates respect for all individuals within a community; an environment that is harmonious and reassuring to everyone within reinforces the value of social equality.
Working across an array of building types and budgets, Anne has advanced a humane modernism, an architecture that embraces society’s fundamental responsibilities in the language of today. She crafts enriching environments that uplift the spirit, awaken the senses, and benefit the human endeavors they were designed for— be it work, learning, wellness, or family life. Her approach confronts conventions within the field to argue for design strategies that support the breadth of their inhabitants’ needs, and by example, her work challenges our profession to uphold this responsibility.
