PAUL HAYDEN KIRK, FAIA (1914-1995)
Kirk was born in Salt Lake City UT and arrived in Seattle at the age of eight, graduating from Roosevelt High School in 1932. During his childhood Kirk suffered from polio which left him permanently disabled. His use of one of his arms was limited, he walked with a limp, and he sometimes used a crutch. After receiving an architecture degree from the University of Washington in 1937, Kirk worked for Floyd Naramore, A.M. Young, B. Dudley Stuart, and Henry Bittman. Kirk then started his own practice in 1939 and began designing homes with his older brother, Blair Kirk, a building contractor. In 1944, Kirk established a partnership with architect James J. Chiarelli. Starting in 1950, he had a solo practice which eventually expanded after promoting Donald S. Wallace, and David A. McKinley to partnership level, the firm was reorganized as Kirk, Wallace, McKinley & Associates.
In 1960, in association with Victor Steinbrueck, he designed the University of Washington Faculty Center, honored with design awards from AIA Washington and the American Institute of Steel Construction and published in Progressive Architecture and Steel Construction Digest. Projects from this period also include the 1963 Seattle Public Library, the 1963 Japanese Presbyterian Church, the 1967 French Administration Building at Washington State University, the 1974 Edmond Meany Hall at University of Washington, the 1965 IBM Office Building in Spokane, and the 1967 Alexander Graham Bell Elementary School in Kirkland. With architect John Morse, he authored a plan to buy and restore buildings in Pike Place Market in 1969, a step that led to the Market's eventual preservation. Paul Hayden Kirk retired from practice and transferred his firm to partner David McKinley in 1979. Dale Kutzera wrote the first major book on Kirk in 2021. Bio adapted from Wikipedia.
