Principal in Charge
Fujikawa Johnson Gobel Architects
Tomoo Fujikawa began his career in 1988 as a student intern with the firm of Fujikawa Johnson and Associates. He apprenticed under Gerald Johnson and Joseph Fujikawa; having become an Associate in 1994 and then a Senior Associate in 1998. In 2004, he joined with Gerald Johnson and Greg Gobel as Principals in the successor firm of Fujikawa Johnson Gobel Architects. Mr. Fujikawa currently serves as President and Principal-In-Charge of the firm.
Mr. Fujikawa’s professional experience includes a variety of project types: commercial, governmental, hospitality, multi-residential, educational, building repair, historic preservation, and many others. His ability to transform a client’s program into a building design illustrates his particular expertise in conceptual planning and site feasibility studies. His unique ability to bridge the scientific realm of functional systems with the art of design has been an important contribution to the Firm.
He has been involved in the design and management of large and very complex commissions, but he also relishes the design challenges of smaller, intimate projects. He has an abiding belief that for any project to be successful, it must be done with a collaborative mindset, an exhaustive attention to detail and a commitment to excellence – from concept to completion.
