We are thrilled to announce that 2020 marks ARG’s 40th Anniversary as a firm!


Founded in 1980 with the simple ethos of creating great places through preserving our built heritage and having fun in the process, ARG has grown from a two-person office into a 50+ person firm with locations in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Portland. During the past forty years, ARG has had the privilege of working with great clients and consultants on projects that preserve, protect, and adapt historic buildings, sites and objects for a new generation.


To celebrate this momentous occasion, we are taking a few moments each week to look back at a year in ARG’s history. Please follow along with us as we recount some of the special moments that have led up to this one.
