GSA-Boogertman+Partners ILS #9 - Nina Cohen and Fiona Garson

NINA COHEN AND FIONA GARSON have been in partnership for 15 years. The studio draws on skilled staff and collaborators as the need arises. This flexibility enables the partners to be intimately involved in all projects and to be discerning when deciding which projects to take on. As the partners say, ‘our open and respectful working relationship with each other and with our staff makes for good decision-making and a collegial working environment. We enjoy working in a team and collaborating with others.’ Many of the buildings Cohen and Garson have designed are ground-breaking. They have been published in prestigious magazines such as Domus (Italian), Detail (German), and Architecture Digest (South African) amongst others. They received the Visi Designer of the Year award in 2012 for the Wits Art Museum. They also received an award of excellence from GIfA and a National Award of Merit from SAIA for WAM.
