Art Gallery of Alberta Building
The new Art Gallery of Alberta is an engaging and inviting visual arts center in downtown Edmonton, Alberta. Celebrating its prominent location on Sir Winston Churchill Square, the city’s arts and government core, the building’s architectural design formally and philosophically extends out into the community, welcoming visitors of all ages and backgrounds to experience contemporary art firsthand.

Taubman Museum of Art
The Taubman Museum of Art building’s forms and materials evoke the drama of the surrounding mountainous landscape of the Shenandoah Valley – the Blue Ridge Mountains and Appalachian Mountains – and the industrial era building culture of the early 20th century railroad boom when Roanoke came to prominence as a switchpoint city.

Los Angeles Architects


Randall Stout Architects, Inc. is a Los Angeles-based architectural, interiors, planning, and urban design firm, with award-winning national and international projects. Founded more than a decade ago, Randall Stout Architects has designed numerous buildings that are recognized as prominent architectural icons within and beyond their respective communities. Not only do they aesthetically embody the ethics and values of the clients they serve, but they also engage the public with uplifting forms and spaces that incite curiosity and respect.

Randall Stout Architects takes great care in creating forms that are inviting and artistic without being static. Light, shadow, form, and materials all contribute to shaping a dynamic architecture that heightens one’s awareness of space and sense of discovery; the sequences of rooms and views emphasizes the experience of the building rather than the display of form. Users are not a passive audience on a stage but actors in their own unfolding space.

Although work by Randall Stout Architects is unquestionably contemporary in nature, it does not have a singular style. Instead, each project expresses the uniqueness of its each site, regional context, and client objectives. These expressions tend toward abstraction, allowing individual interpretation and meaning. Collectively, Randall Stout Architects buildings contain a narrative that expresses optimism about our culture, technology, and arts, evidencing their place in the 21st century.

Recognizing the interdependence of design innovation and functionality, Randall Stout Architects fields a highly talented team that methodically pursues creative design solutions. The materials used to realize these goals are often not exotic. With a proven expertise in executing complex and specialized projects, Randall Stout and the design team prefer to work in a “matter-of-fact” manner, using familiar building materials with excellent life-cycle value, crafting them in ways that make the ordinary extraordinary.

Randall Stout Architects also understands the importance of architecture’s role in the global environment. The team includes LEED accredited architects who are active with the California Council Sustainability Task Force and the AIA’s Committee on the Environment and are focused on sustainability and environmental responsibility. Randall Stout Architects projects have been recognized for both design and environmental excellence and have received top sustainability awards in the United States and Europe including an AIA/COTE “Top Ten Green” Award and the SOLTEC 98 Award for “Innovation in Technology”.

Current cultural and educational projects by Randall Stout Architects include the Art Gallery of Alberta (Edmonton, Alberta); University of Alabama at Birmingham Institute for the Visual Arts (Birmingham, Alabama); the San Juan College Creative Arts Center (Farmington, New Mexico); and the Dockweiler State Beach Youth Center (Los Angeles, California). Additional commissions include those for the Holocaust Museum Houston (Houston, Texas) and the New Mexico Museum of Art (Santa Fe, New Mexico).

Randall Stout


Founding principal of the Los Angeles-based firm of Randall Stout Architects, Inc., architect Randall Stout is widely admired for buildings that relate vividly to the unique composition of their natural settings; employ technologically advanced sustainable solutions; draw program from inside to outside to establish a perfect economy of gesture and scale; and transform their sites for the betterment of surrounding communities.

Born and raised in Tennessee, Stout has demonstrated his unique combination of architectural vision and environmental activism in a variety of building types, ranging from museums and corporate headquarters to aquatic centers, power stations, firehouses, and other industrial structures in the United States and Europe. Inspired by early experiences in passive solar research and development, Stout has worked assiduously to use architecture as a means to advocate environmental responsibility. A LEED® accredited professional, he has served on the American Institute of Architects (AIA) Committee on the Environment and the California Council Sustainability Task Force.

Committed to his role as an educator, Stout has taught and lectured at numerous schools and universities including Cornell University, University of Tennessee, UCLA, University of Southern California, and the University of Texas at Austin. Most recently he served as the E. Fay Jones Chair of Architecture at the University of Arkansas. He often lectures at conferences and professional summits across the country and is a member of the GSA Design Excellence Peer Program.

Stout’s projects have received numerous design and sustainability awards and honors. In 2003, the Steinhüde Sea Recreational Facility in Germany received the American Institute of Architects’ “Top Ten Green” Award. Other honors include numerous awards from regional American Institute of Architects chapters and two American Architecture Awards present by the Chicago Athenaeum. The Taubman Museum was awarded an American Architecture Award in 2007. Stout himself was elevated to the AIA College of Fellows in 2003.

The Taubman Museum of Art is Stout’s first completed freestanding museum commission. Previously, Stout designed the addition for the Hunter Museum of American Art in Chattanooga, Tennessee which opened in 2005. He has also worked with museums across the country including the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and the Baltimore Museum of Art on comprehensive master planning, programming, and facility evaluations.

Among the firm’s many current cultural and educational commissions are the Art Gallery of Alberta (Edmonton, Alberta); University of Alabama at Birmingham Institute for the Visual Arts (Birmingham, Alabama); the San Juan College Creative Arts Center (Farmington, New Mexico); and the Dockweiler State Beach Youth Center (Los Angeles, California).
