Architizer Ranks KPF One of the Top 5 Design Firms in the US

Architizer’s annual inventory of the 100 best architecture and design firms in the United States places KPF at number 5.

Updated annually, Architizer’s rankings are based on a synthesis of statistics generated by 400 jurors and hundreds of thousands of public votes, drawing on the world’s largest online community of architects. This season’s Architizer awards highlighted “creative courage” as fundamental to high-quality design in a time of rapid environmental, technological, and societal change. Firms on the list are recognized for their ability to “regenerate, reuse, rethink, reinvent, or reimagine” the built environment. In total, KPF has received 5 A+ Award wins, 15 A+ Award finalists, and 44 featured projects within these criteria.

This year, two KPF projects were recognized in the Architizer A+ Awards: Huamu Lot 10 in Shanghai, the jury winner in the Office category, and SouthWorks in Ithaca, a Popular Choice winner in the Masterplan category.

With the 4th most featured projects, KPF is recognized by the Architizer Editorial Board not only for architectural design but also the firm’s strong photography library that guides viewers through key projects.
