About 

Jack Bialosky Jr. leads one of the Midwest’s most successful and collaborative architecture firms, Bialosky + Partners Architects. From his Cleveland office he designs and manages his firm’s most significant projects.

The firm is known for the quality of its designs, the diversity of its clients, the longevity of its staff, and the range of its portfolio of work.

In 2009, the firm was recognized by the American Institute of Architects as a Gold Medal Firm, the highest honor awarded by its peers, in recognition of great depth and breadth, a collaborative environment, and having a cumulative effect on the profession over a substaintial period of time. Jack’s initiative to seek out talented ambitious designers, artists and experts and add them to the creative process has fostered richly innovative partnerships with designers such as Maya Lin, David Moss, and Architecture Research Office, among others.


Jack Bialosky, Jr. serves on numerous boards and committees regarding the region’s art and design, including The City of Cleveland Design Review Commission, and GCRTA Arts in Transit Committee.
