Architecture

We believe architecture is critically
important to addressing the most
pressing challenges of our time.

Our philosophy

Architecture provides an opportunity to not only add beauty and structure to the world, but to profoundly improve the conditions for people, communities, society, businesses and the environment.

Over the last 15 years, we’ve been awarded nearly 600 awards for design excellence and have placed high in nearly every industry ranking. In 2017 and 2019, Fast Company named us one of the 10 most innovative architecture firms in the world.

But our work is defined by so much more than just recognition. It’s defined by our ability to explore new ideas and harness technology and data to challenge conventions. It’s defined by proof that good design can improve business outcomes and support people with their health, wellness and learning. And it’s defined by our ability to not only create architecture that makes the world a more beautiful place, but a smarter, more sustainable, equitable and inspiring place.
