Gemeinschaften

Wie wir zusammenarbeiten

Die Architekten von KPF teilen ihr Wissen über verschiedene Gemeinschaftsinitiativen,
finden Innovationsmöglichkeiten und befähigen Mitarbeiter
auf allen Ebenen, Höchstleistungen zu erbringen.

KPF is a unified architectural practice focused on the design of buildings of all types and scales, in all geographic regions

Town Halls

The firm gathers each week to share work, ideas and inspiration,
and take a deeper look at subjects core to KPF’s philosophy.

The weekly format varies, with some meetings featuring “A Walk Through the Studio” with team members sharing aspects of ongoing projects. Other sessions take a less formal approach, such as a video compilation by staff showcasing home workspaces and personal projects during the COVID-19 quarantine. Each meeting offers a chance to voice observations, share suggestions, and create connections among employees at all levels, in all global offices.

Nachhaltigkeit, Belastbarkeit und Wohlbefinden

Die Gruppe des Bereichs Nachhaltigkeit, Belastbarkeit und Wohlbefinden
integriert ihre Mission in den Arbeitsablauf und das Ethos der globalen Praxis.

Zu den Aktivitäten der Gruppe gehören die Pflege der Datenbank der Nachhaltigkeits- und Belastbarkeitsstrategien, das Einladen von Gastdozenten und Branchenexperten, die Durchführung von Studien, um Informationen für zukünftige Arbeiten zu gewinnen, sowie die Bereitstellung von Ideen und technischem Support für die Designteams. Die Gruppe trifft sich monatlich, um offene Punkte der Aufgabenliste zu diskutieren und ihre Agenda voranzutreiben, während sie immerzu nach Möglichkeiten suchen, die die Grenzen des kreativen, verantwortungsvollen Denkens erweitern.

KPF Lab

Das KPF Lab ist ein Forum, in dem innovative Tools und Arbeitsabläufe
hervorgehoben werden. Sein Schwerpunkt liegt darauf, die Teilnehmer
zu inspirieren, intelligenter und kreativer zu arbeiten.

As a firm, KPF takes on some of the most complex design challenges in the world. These projects require efficiency, precision, flexibility, and design excellence. Emerging technologies for simulation and fabrication, to advanced modelling and visualization, to coordination and documentation, offer new ways for architects to create and execute more effectively. KPF Lab hosts frequent events to foster the sharing and discussion of innovative technologies and exploratory methods in architecture.

Young Designers' Forum

Das „Young Designers' Forum“ (YDF) dient als
Plattform für eine offene Diskussion über Design
unter den Nachwuchskräften und Praktikanten.

With monthly themed meetings, YDF promotes exploratory discourse and offers an outlet for young designers to connect with peers. Led by a steering committee, each event presents a different discursive format—sometimes with presenters or a set agenda—but always with the intention of creating an open forum for all to participate. Occasionally, the group hosts office-wide competitions or mixers for gathering ideas and topics.

Show & Tell

Show & Tell zelebriert durch gemeinsame
Themen im Bereich der architektonischen Konzepte
die große Bandbreite an aktuellen KPF-Projekten.

The committee organizes a series of events, each with its own theme that investigates an issue of architectural design. The exhibition format offers a venue to reflect critically on how our various projects relate to one another and how our work fits into broader questions of the practice.

Das ganze Jahr über finden regelmäßig Veranstaltungen statt, bei denen die Projektteams dazu ermutigt werden, Poster ihrer aktuellen Arbeit zu erstellen, die sich mit dem Thema der jeweiligen Veranstaltung befassen. Die Poster werden eingesammelt, gedruckt, aufgehängt und anschließend während einer Happy-Hour-Versammlung vorgestellt. Jede Präsentation führt zu lebhaften Diskussionen über die Arbeit, wovon die pädagogische und soziale Atmosphäre des Büros profitiert.

KPF Public

KPF Public is a platform for all within the firm to address
issues of racial and social inequality and combat the inequities
that exist within the profession and the built environment.

The group’s mission comprises three areas of focus: education, outreach and design. The first integrates topics of injustice into the firm’s education program to broaden the purpose and perspective underlying its design and culture. The second is both to increase racial diversity within the firm through hiring and development and to leverage KPF’s position within the industry to create academic and employment opportunities for BIPOC professionals. The third is to pursue collaborations and commissions in both the public and private sectors that enable design to create more equitable cities.

KPF+

KPF+ is dedicated to enabling women to achieve
their full potential at work, and to advancing
gender equity in leadership.

The group invites guest lecturers to speak about innovation, leadership, and women's issues, hosting follow-up discussions to create a critical dialogue within the office.

At the group's inaugural event on June 4, 2019, R. May Lee, a Partner at The Seelig Group, presented Finding Your Voice: Gaining and Wielding Power, a talk that has been received with much acclaim both nationally and around the world.
