The Factor Behind Winning the AIA KC 2022 Firm Award

Generator Studio has received the AIA Kansas City 2022 Firm Award for exceptional leadership and significant contributions to the profession and the built environment.

From local nonprofit work to national professional sports projects, Generator Studio has done it all in 2022 and the Kansas City architecture community is taking notice. Notable work in 2022 includes NWSL KC Current training facility and stadium, MLS Seattle Sounders FC Center at Longacres, Academy Bank corporate HQ, Grand Place, Child Protection Center, Margaritaville KCK and a new restaurant concept with Back Napkin coming to the Crossroads in 2023, among other projects. 

The one indispensable factor that continually contributes to the success of these projects, our staff. Our staff is at the center of all our projects, making them a reality.

“We owe our success to our staff hands down,” said Mike Kress, Co-Founder of Generator Studio. “Our talented, hard-working staff is the reason we are here and can take on these impactful projects.”

Tom Proebstle, Co-Founder of Generator Studio, adds, “We take pride in the diversity of our projects from venues to non-profits and hospitality. It allows our staff to have exposure to different types of work that keeps them engaged and learning.”
