History of ARG

Founded in 1980 with the simple ethos of creating great places through preserving our built heritage and having fun in the process, ARG has grown from a two-person office into a 50+ person firm with locations in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Portland. Since the beginning, ARG has had the privilege of working with great clients and consultants on projects that preserve, protect, and adapt historic buildings, sites and objects for a new generation.


Below is a compilation of key projects and moments in the history of ARG from 1980 – 2020.
