Beyond Mobility, coauthored by Al, Robert Cervero and Erick Guerra, recently won the 2019 National Urban Design Book Award. We sat down with Stefan for a brief conversation about the book and his work at KPF.
KPF has announced two recipients of the 2019 Paul Katz Fellowship for study in Tel Aviv, Israel. The winners, Zhonghui Zhu and Miriam Alexandroff, are M.Arch candidates at Princeton and Harvard, respectively.
KPF has been shortlisted as Refurbishment Architect of the Year 2019. Four recently-completed London projects detailed in the entry (Floral Court, Carriage Hall, Which? Headquarters and Southbank Tower) provide a snapshot of the diversity of KPF’s portfolio, displaying the practice’s refurbishment expertise and commitment to the wider city. The winner will be announced at a ceremony in London on May 1st.
Each year, Kohn Pedersen Fox presents three $10,000 awards to students who are in their penultimate year at one of the twenty-seven design schools with whom KPF has chosen to partner. The goal of the award is to allow students to broaden their education through a summer of travel before their final year at school.
The two KPF-designed supertall towers were named finalists in the Best Futura Mega Project category (One Vanderbilt) and Best Office & Business Development category (CITIC Tower). Winners will be announced at a ceremony in Cannes, France on March 14th.
KPF’s work in London’s historic Covent Garden with Capital & Counties (Capco) has been recognised by the New York Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, with Floral Court named as a winner in the 2019 AIANY Design Awards.
The Dongdaegu Transportation Hub, the China Resources Headquarters, CITIC Tower, the Ping An Finance Centre, One Shenzhen Bay, and 10 Hudson Yards were recognized in several categories across the two programs.
CITIC Tower earned Gold for Best Chinese Futura Mega Project and WF Central earned Bronze for Best Retail Development.
The KPF Director and nineteen other industry-leading women have been recognized by the nonprofit organization for outstanding accomplishments in their field.
