Performance Driven, Poetically Crafted Architecture

Ola Johnston, AIA; Architect; Chicago

Ola’s journey to her life and career in Chicago has involved many stops along the way – Warsaw, Texas, Connecticut, Oregon, and Barcelona. She is fluent in three languages and still enjoys traveling off the beaten path, but she feels most at home in Chicago. With more than a decade of experience, Ola is a problem solver and enjoys designing the best solutions for housing the functions and events that make up our daily lives. She believes doing this well requires an understanding what the day-to-day really means. Ola earned her Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Visual Art from the University of Chicago and her Master of Architecture from the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Besides being highly skilled at designing buildings, Ola is an excellent banana bread baker.
