CannonDesign Ascends to Top 10 in Architectural Record Top 300 Firms

Now #9 in the rankings, our firm jumped up four positions from its 2020 mark. The rise is fueled by significant revenue growth, dynamic design projects, service line expansion and recent mergers and acquisitions.

In Architectural Record’s summary article published with the 2021 rankings, our Executive Director of Design David Polzin shares, “Much has changed in the world in just the last year, but CannonDesign has continued on its trajectory for the future, which is motivated by our Living-Centered Design ethos and a broader definition of design that considers not only our clients’ needs but also those of communities, society and the environment.

Our teams continue to shape the built environment in stunning and beautiful ways, but we are also designing software, new computational tools, modular construction solutions, business strategies and more. We bring our inclusive design process to every challenge for true, meaningful, multi-scaler change.”

Some of the most notable moves fueling our growth include the addition of Blue Cottage of CannonDesign, our strategic alliance with ModularDesign+, the remarkable growth of Facility Optimization Solutions and unwavering commitment to design excellence. In recent months, top design press have published Mount Sinai Medical Center Skolnick Surgical Tower, multiple projects with the Museum of Tolerance, Kaiser Permanente’s Bernard J. Tyson School of Medicine, D’Youville’s Health Professions Hub, NYU’s Bobst Library and more.

We are thrilled with our firm’s continued growth and are excited to continue to deliver remarkably calibrated, Living-Centered design solutions.
