Nathan Kipnis, FAIA

Nathan Kipnis has spent his career practicing and promoting the importance of sustainability and energy efficiency in architectural design. A life-long interest was initially sparked during the 1973 energy crisis, and Mr. Kipnis designed his first solar home, located in Boulder, CO, when he was just 22 years old.

The architectural work designed by Mr. Kipnis has been widely published both locally and nationally.

Selected awards and distinctions include:
2015 – Elevated to the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects.
The award is given to those who have made significant contributions to the profession and society on a national level.
2011 – Chicago Magazine Green Award
2009 – Home of the Decade, Natural Home Magazine
1999 – Green Homes for Chicago
A KAP design was selected for this international design competition and built.

“He is one of Chicago’s new breed of up-and-coming architects, who blends excellence in architecture with a social conscience. Before the advent of air conditioning, before electricity, everything that was built related to nature. Nate understands that. He made a habit of it long before it was fashionable.” — Stanley Tigerman, FAIA and co-founder of Archeworks.

Viewing the mission beyond his own practice of architecture, Mr. Kipnis’s leadership was instrumental in helping to develop the idea of an offshore wind farm in Lake Michigan off Evanston’s shoreline. The work led to a Design Evanston Urban Design/Planning award, and the project is now on the DOE’s list of potential offshore wind farm sites.

Additionally, he currently serves as Co-chair for The National AIA AIA 2030 Commitment’s working groups. In this capacity, he assists architects with the AIA 2030 Commitment, whose goal is to design full Net Zero buildings by 2030.

Nathan Kipnis also lectures extensively on topics related to sustainable architectural design and renewable energy. He has been an invited speaker at numerous symposiums and conferences, including at national AIA conventions, the Chicago AIA, Archeworks, GreenBuild, The Midwest Renewable Energy Association, the Center for Green Technology in Chicago, and Northwestern University’s “Green City Summer Institute,” as well as being one of the keynote speakers at the Mother Earth News Fair, among others.
