Gordon’s design hand is an influential part of the development and evolution of Pacific Northwest regional architecture and modernism. A trusted and admired architect, his work is permeated with attention to place and detail. Whether he is working on mixed use housing, creative workplaces, or hospitality, Gordon knows the technical requirements that the design must incorporate to allow for elegant and cost effective solutions. His personally engaging style endears him to the people using the space, resulting in a greater understanding of and relationship between the users and the place.
A sought out advisor internally for Mithun’s design projects and emerging leaders, Gordon often teaches at the University of Washington College of the Built Environment where his passion for the mentorship of the next generation of architects continues beyond those at Mithun.
