The Bumwad

We are always sketching, scribbling and searching for that perfect design solution. In fact, we always have a roll of tracing paper — or as designers and architects call it: bumwad — close at hand on our desks.

"Although we are a Chicago architecture firm, we serve our clients nationally and pride ourselves on our unique point of view, solution-oriented thinking and commitment to process and efficiency. And, although we embrace technology and love pushing it to the limit, we will always have a special place for that ubiquitous roll of bumwad." — John Chipman, founder.
