2000's

HGA continues to adapt to changes in technology and the needs of corporate, healthcare, and arts and education clients. The firm is currently designing the new headquarters for Minnesota Public Radio that will serve as the hub for the global broadcast and Internet reach of this programming innovator. HGA is also working with General Mills to expand its modernist corporate headquarters campus to accommodate the recent merger with Pillsbury. Through our California offices, the firm is working with major colleges and universities such as Cal-State Los Angeles, Cabrillo College, and El Camino College to design new campus centers, science buildings, and arts facilities. In Sacramento, HGA designed the M.I.N.D. Institute, a research campus uniting the University of California and regional expertise in the study of Autism and other neuro-developmental disorders. The firm's healthcare practice continues to diversify with projects for the Mayo Clinic, the OSU Heart Hospital, St Luke's Episcopal Health System and elsewhere. True to its studio traditions of the last fifty years, HGA continues to encourage teamwork and cross-disciplinary collaborations. With large healthcare, education, and performance projects throughout the country, HGA brings national expertise and local presence to its work. Yet, the firm also retains an intimate and personal scale - close-knit teams to pursue interesting and rewarding commissions from small project such as historic church renovations to large, highly complex hospitals and lab buildings. There is a sense of excitement about design in all of HGA's offices; it is often a topic of conversation, lunch seminars and enthusiastic staff entries to design competitions. The team tradition begun in 1953 remains vital today.
