Frederick Fisher is principal of Frederick Fisher and Partners Architects (FFP).
Driven to create fulfilling environments, Frederick Fisher approaches architecture as a collaborative process. Fisher gained stature in the art and academic worlds by designing exceptional spaces for the practice and exhibition of art, as well as for intense, interdisciplinary study. Recognition of his legacy of design excellence is reflected in his selection as the 2013 Gold Medal recipient by the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, the highest honor awarded by each chapter. He is a Fellow of the American Academy in Rome, where he combined his passions for art and architecture in the exploration of museum meaning and design. A registered architect since 1978, Fisher received his Bachelor of Arts degree from Oberlin College in Art and Art History and a Master’s of Architecture from UCLA. He was Chairman of the Environmental Design Department at Otis College of Art & Design for seven years and is currently Chairman of the Board of Governors. Fred is also a Board Member for both the Board of Councilors at USC School of Architecture and the Board of Visitors at the UCLA School of the Arts. As founder of FFP, he directs a practice that prides itself on architecture that is responsive, realistic, responsible, and revelatory. “If you make something that brings people pleasure and fulfillment,” he says, “then you’ve done your job as an architect.”
