Professional History


Architect / Co-founder, NBBJ, Sports and Entertainment, Architects, Los Angeles, CA, 1995- . Within the Seattle-based firm of NBBJ, Hallmark co-founded this Los Angeles studio along with Ronald F. Turner and Daniel R. Meis (born 1961). By 1999, this division of NBBJ employed approximately 70 people. This studio situated itself in Los Angeles not Kansas City, MO, where the dominant sports architecture firms had settled. According to the Los Angeles Times in 1999: "NBBJ Sports & Entertainment is one of the few major sports architecture firms that is not headquartered in Kansas City, Mo., where a group of firms--including HOK Sport and Ellerbee Becket--dominate the design of sporting facilities nationwide. NBBJ’s location in the heart of the entertainment industry has clearly influenced its work, said Meis. 'We noticed the emergence of entertainment as important to sports,' Meis said. 'It was a calculated decision on our part to be in one of the entertainment capitals. The background of the talent we recruit in Los Angeles is very much different' from that in Kansas City."
