Jon Gentry, Aimée O’Carroll. GO’C

GO'C. Internationally active Pacific Northwest architectural firm founded by Jon Gentry and Aimée O'Carroll in 2012. GO'C is an award-winning architectural firm inspired by the interplay of rational design and artistic expression. From residential to commercial to public spaces, they thrive on the challenges of site-specific work and find opportunities in constraints.

Jon Gentry co-founded GO’C in 2012 and is a registered architect in the state of Washington. Jon worked for over 8 years with Olson Kundig Architects as a project architect and manager on a number of award-winning private residences and commercial projects. As a partner and designer at Graypants, he worked on custom lighting and furniture products that have been exhibited and sold internationally. Jon completed his studies at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where he earned his Bachelor of Arts in Architecture with a minor in Philosophy and at North Carolina State University where he earned his Master of Architecture degree. Jon believes that architecture, born of a passionate process and inextricably tied to the act of making, can inspire and elevate the everyday.

Aimée O’Carroll co-founded GO’C in 2012 and is a registered architect in the UK. Aimée previously worked on unique private residences with Liddicoat & Goldhill in London and Olson Kundig Architects in Seattle, as well as urban development projects with Stock|Woolstencroft. Building a house for just $20k with Rural Studio has given her hands-on experience in efficient and effective construction which has had a continued influence on her work to date. Aimée completed her studies at the University of Cambridge and the Architectural Association. Nominated for both the Bronze and Silver RIBA President’s medals, her work has been widely published and exhibited in the UK and abroad. Aimée is passionate about design as a collaborative process; as a way to blur the conventional perceptions of what we understand as architecture.
