VLADIMIR (VAL) NICHOLAS OSSIPOFF, FAIA (1907-1998)

Ossipoff was born in Vladivostok, Russia, and moved in 1909 to Tokyo where he grew up. He attended Yokohama's St. Joseph's College and the Tokyo Foreign School and was fluent in Russian, Japanese, and English. He visited Tokyo's Second Imperial Hotel designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and was greatly influence by Wright's organic architectural style. After moving to the US in 1923, he graduated from high school in Berkeley CA in 1926 and from UC Berkeley in 1931. He took two short jobs in California, one with an Los Angeles architect and the other with the San Francisco firm Crim Reasing McGinnis.

In 1931, he moved to Honolulu, Hawai'i, and found work with architect Charles W. Dickey, Ray Morris who was the head of Lewers and Cooke's building department, and then Theo H. Davies & Company. In September 1935 Ossipoff left the Davies office to form a partnership with C. A. Stiehl in Manoa. In March 1936, he formed his own architectural firm. He was elected President of AIA Hawai'i in 1941 and again in 1964. Later, he was awarded the first medal of honor from AIA Hawai'i.

Commercial projects across the state include the terminals at the Kahului Airport on Maui and the Kona Airport on the Big Island, the open-air grand lānai style terminal at the Daniel K. Inouye International Airport in Honolulu. His archives are at Hamilton Library at the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa. He's widely recognized as the master of Hawai'i modern architecture.
