The ever-vocal champion of the “i” in ai3, Lucy Aiken-Johnson, ASID, has long been a driving force behind the growth of the agency. As an award-winning designer and ai3’s sole female partner, Aiken-Johnson has established a reputation of her own. Such distinction has made her a sought-after resource for minority partnerships. Realizing that an individual venture could allow her to play a role in a greater diversity of projects, Aiken-Johnson established ai3 studio in 2009.
An extension of ai3, Inc., ai3 studio is a certified women’s business enterprise (WBE), providing architecture, interior design, and product development services. ai3 studio bridges the creative and collaborative advantages of a boutique studio environment with the experience and resources of an award-winning design firm. This makes ai3 studio an ideal design partner for large public and corporate projects that feature expansive teams.
