James Gui, Architect, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in architecture management.
From 1967, up until 2005, Mr. Gui managed and ran his own architecture firm, the James E. Gui, Architectural and Specifications Consultant. As a proprietor, he utilized his years of prior experience in the field to make his client’s dreams move from paper to real life buildings. Some of the many important projects he has worked on throughout his career have been the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Lincoln Center, the New England Aquarium, the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and the Independence National Historical Park Visitors Center among a variety of other notable structures.
Prior to opening his own firm, Mr. Gui gained experience as the Chief of Specifications for Architects Collaborative and as an associate at Charles F. McKirahan & Associates. Mr. Gui answered an advertisement in an architectural magazine to do specialty work for the Architects Collaborative. They got him in for an interview from South Florida to Massachusetts, and he subsequently was hired. Mr. Gui feels he was so fortunate to be hired by the best firm. In preparation for this, he first connected with a top firm in Florida, which helped him get the job he wanted.
Mr. Gui attests that his success is due to a tremendous amount of hard work, luck and determination. He always remained focused on doing the best possible work, which helped take him from working on smaller projects and with smaller firms, to some of the top projects and firms of the day. He prepared for a career in architecture by earning a BArch from Ohio State University in 1954. The university prepared him well for design, and it was outside of college that he picked up much of his knowledge concerning materials and systems. In 2003, Ohio State University recognized him with a Distinguished Alumnus Award.
