Ola Johnston, AIA

Ola has 7 years of experience working on architecture projects varying in scale from single family residential, to community centers, urban parks, and sky scrapers. She didn’t always know she wanted to be an architect though, and received a BA in sociology and in fine art at the University of Chicago before her Masters in Architecture at UIC. She keeps coming back to Chicago, but has left the city to live in New Haven, Dallas, Portland, Barcelona, and Warsaw, often for years at a time.

When she’s not problem solving at work, she’s honing her baby-raising, ukulele-playing, backyard- gardening, and Netflix-streaming skills​
