2001 Maybeck Award
Craig Hartman, FAIA
Hartman has worked with Skidmore, Owings & Merrill for nearly 40 years and has been design partner at SOM’s San Francisco office since 1990. His personal vision informs every project in his diverse California portfolio: “My commitment has been to make architecture with a public spirit and that resonates with its cultural and physical setting,” he wrote to the AIACC in 2001. “I have tried hard throughout my career to achieve those qualities within a modern architectural vocabulary that recognizes the importance of a clear relationship between material, structure and form and the enriching qualities of natural light.”
In the last decade, Hartman has completed some of his most celebrated projects yet, including the International Terminal at the San Francisco International Airport and the Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland. He is currently at work on compact, sustainable neighborhood plans to revitalize San Francisco’s Treasure Island and Parkmerced communities.
