Michael Maiese
Associate Principal

Since joining Bohlin Cywinski Jackson in 1989, Mike has honed his skills in consensus-building, helping to identify issues and deliver solutions to integrate concepts, needs, and expectations into buildings that speak to the character of a client and institution. This philosophy features prominently in his work for the Digital Arts Corporate Campus in Southern California, the Chemistry & Chemical Engineering Research Building at Caltech, and the Rakow Research Library at The Corning Museum of Glass. Mike was drawn to architecture through his appreciation for the craft of building—he believes the most rewarding phase of a project is witnessing it take form during construction. He enjoys collaborating with builders and craftspeople to realize the vision of a project at both large and small scales, translating design intent into physical form by the simplest and most efficient means. Mike’s interest in building envelope technologies has spurred him to lead Bohlin Cywinski Jackson’s internal Glass & Glazing research group. He has presented his studies on decorative glazing technologies in a variety of forums, including the Glass Performance Days in Finland, where he discussed how advancements in glazing technology aids clients in achieving functional and aesthetic goals.
