Remembering Tom Cole

Categories: News

Thomas Cole, 1935-2018

Thirty-five years ago, two young architects founded Cole & Russell Architects in the summer kitchen barn on Tom’s rural Cincinnati farm. Known to be a big man in both stature and spirit, he approached every opportunity with humor, humility and, most notably, an honest and frank opinion. We honor his memory by dedicating ourselves to CR and the legacy he leaves behind, for without him, none of this would be possible.

“A true mentor and friend, Tom showed integrity and character through every detail and action, and accepted nothing less from those around him. With his passing, CR loses a visionary leader and driving force behind our firm’s identity. Together, we endeavor to uphold the standard of care he embodied.”
-David S. Arends, President + CEO, CR architecture + design
