The Giattina Aycock Architecture Studio (formerly Brandon Crawford & Associates, Crawford Giattina & Mitchel, Crawford Giattina & Partners, Giattina Kirkwood & Partners, Giattina & Partners, and Giattina Fisher Aycock) is a large architecture firm founded in 1966 by Brandon Crawford, Joseph Giattina Jr and George Brian Mitchel.

Crawford left in 1980 to co-found Crawford McWilliams Hatcher Architects. Shortly thereafter, Marzette Fisher and Jamie Aycock were elevated to partner. In 2001, management of the firm was passed to Joseph's son, Chris Giattina, along with now senior principals Jamie Aycock, Fred Yeager, Ty Cole, and Brian Giattina.

Also in 2001, the firm outgrew their offices in the former 1st Church of Christ Scientist on 11th Avenue South, and moved into a street-level space designed by the architects in the Jemison Flats building at 1827 1st Avenue North. In 2010, the partners founded BLOX, a company that designs and manufactures pre-engineered building components, and in 2016 the two companies were consolidated as all operations were moved to the site of the former Pullman Standard Plant in Bessemer.
