Kim Pham joined Stuart Silk Architects as a Project Manager in 2013. He received his Bachelor and Master’s Degrees in Architecture from the University of Washington. Between his Undergraduate and Graduate education, he worked for three years at Boeing Commercial Aircraft Company as a Tool Designer. After his Graduate work he had his apprenticeship for five years at Bassetti Norton Mettler Rekovics and received his architectural license in 1993. He worked at George Suyama Architects in 1995 and again at Suyama Peterson Deguchi in 2000 where he gained valuable lessons in architectural design.
Kim’s professional experience is also closely related to architectural education. Since 1990 he has been invited to teach design studios at the University of Washington College of Architecture and Urban Planning. He has served on juries, thesis advisory boards, design review boards, and as a moderator in architectural conferences.
Kim’s greatest passion is the art and craft of architecture: the making of spaces. To him, architecture happens as we are experiencing its spaces. Through these experiences we hear its stories and through its stories we find ourselves, our place and time. The role of an architect in a project, Kim believes, is to be attentive, to listen well and to bring together all the diverse aspects, factors, concerns and demands into a coherent whole, a singularity of voices: a story.
Outside of the office, Kim likes to walk his dog Stella.
