Randall Stout, FAIA, is the president and principal-in-charge of Los Angeles-based Randall Stout Architects, Inc. Directing projects worldwide, Stout’s design experience includes cultural, civic, educational, commercial, institutional, industrial, recreational, and residential facilities. Across this broad spectrum of project types, his buildings are known for dynamic forms, state of the art technology, and environmental sustainability. Considered a visionary whose evocative design aesthetic consistently challenges architectural conventions, Stout creates environments that capture the unique composition of their surroundings, while transforming light, shadow, form, and materials into innovative architecture.

A passionate advocate for environmental responsibility, Stout is a LEED accredited architect whose sustainable strategies are an integral part of his holistic design process. Recognized for producing some of the world’s most distinguished sustainable architecture, RSA has received top national awards for sustainability in Germany and the United States. These include the Steinhude Sea Recreational Facility which was honored with an AIA-COTE Top Ten Green Award and the German SOLTEC Award for “Innovation in Technology.” To date, RSA’s projects include an annual carbon dioxide reduction of approximately 40,000 cubic tons in comparison to conventional construction. Stout lectures widely on the topic of green design at professional summits, focusing on proven strategies and solutions for sustainable design both in the U.S. and abroad.

Stout’s robust record for establishing regional, national, and international collaborations with specialists and architects also promotes a high level of project innovation and productivity. RSA has completed projects in the U.S., Canada and Europe and maintains architectural licenses in Alberta, Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Tennessee, and Virginia. Randall Stout is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects (FAIA) and is a member of the Alberta Association of Architects (AAA) and the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada (RAIC).

Holding many roles such as educator, mentor, and environmentalist, Stout is an active leader in the profession. Frequently serving as a lecturer, adjunct professor, or studio critic at architecture schools, he has served as the E. Fay Jones Chair of Architecture at the University of Arkansas and the AC Martin Chair in Architecture at the University of Southern California. He lectures at professional and academic conferences across North America.

Featured in international publications and exhibitions, Stout’s projects have been honored with numerous awards for excellence in design. Most recently, the Taubman Museum of Art was recognized for an International Architecture Award by the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
