Our Culture

HGA's collaborative tradition began in 1953 with the partnership of two young architects, Richard Hammel and Curt Green. Joined in 1954 by Bruce Abrahamson, the three-initially working together out of Curt Green's basement-sought to bring the best of modern design to Minnesota.

Today, HGA has eight offices from coast to coast and employs over 700 people. But there's something about our co-founders' legacy that permeates HGA: a work ethic, a genuineness, a resiliency, a collaborative spirit. We're proud of that and know it is a significant factor in why people think this is a great place to work.
