The AIA Ohio Gold Medal is the highest honor that AIA Ohio can bestow on an architecture firm. This award recognizes a firm’s ongoing commitment to design, firm culture, or innovation, each of which contributes to the firm’s unique place as a leader in the profession. This award may be granted annually to a firm that has demonstrated its accomplishments in one or more of these criteria.
The firm was founded in 1999 by architect Christopher Meyers, AIA. In 2007, the firm was the first architect’s office in Ohio to achieve LEED certification for its offices at 232 N. Third Street in Columbus. In 2013, Meyers+Associates was recognized by Architect Magazine as a Top 50 Firm and a Top 10 Firm for Sustainability. The firm’s work ranges from residential to commercial and institutional. It is elevated through a deep exploration of user experience and hospitality, with many projects having received recognition from the greater design community.
In Timothy Hawk, FAIA’s nominating letter, he writes, “Meyers+Associates’ strongest asset is a culture of mentorship. Chris, firm principals, and their fellow leaders have created an empowering environment where emerging professionals access, build, and hone skills in their own unique way. This approach has led to high employee retention, longevity of service, and dedication to the firm’s mission.”

The firm is incredibly moved to be recognized by AIA Ohio for our legacy and commitment to designing thoughtful spaces that invigorate communities and the people in them. “It is such a fantastic honor to be recognized by AIA Ohio with the Gold Medal Firm Award. Our collective team has put so much effort into building a firm that focuses on design, innovation, culture, and our community impact. Gaining this praise for those efforts is so meaningful to us all,” said Chris Meyers, AIA.
When asked about the firm’s role in his professional growth, Brian Peterson, AIA, said in response, “It’s not lost on me that I would not be where I am today if I had not been afforded the unique opportunities to grow and learn in the supportive environment that is central to the Meyers+Associates culture.”
