At the center of Quigley’s design philosophy is his concern for social issues and human values. He foundedhis architecture and planning practice in San Diego in 1978, beginning with small single-family residences whose groundbreaking passive solar designs brought attention to sustainable California architecture long before “green” became a buzzword. Later, Quigley expanded into civic and academic projects, still focused on sustainability but also on addressing the needs of the working poor through innovative affordable housing, such as 1987’s acclaimed Baltic Inn.

Quigley’s firm now includes a branch office in Palo Alto, and he continues to bring his social consciousness to the communities in which he builds. His work, as the 2005 AIACC Design Awards jury put it, “consistently celebrates urban living and design in California.”



The AIACC represents the interests of more than 11,000 architects and allied professionals in California. Founded in 1944, The AIACC's mission supports architects in their endeavors to improve the quality of life for all Californians by creating more livable communities, sustainable designs and quality work environments.
