SHoP Architects was founded twenty years ago to harness the power of diverse expertise in the design of buildings and environments that improve the quality of public life. The group's inclusive, open-minded process allows for effectively addressing a broad range of issues: from novel programmatic concepts, to next-generation fabrication and delivery techniques, to beautifully crafted spaces that precisely suit their functions.
Years ago the group set out to prove that intelligent, evocative architecture can be made with real-world constraints. Today, SHoP Architects' interdisciplinary staff of 180 is implementing that idea at critical sites around the world.
SHoP Architects is proud that the studio has been recognized with awards such as Fast Company’s “Most Innovative Architecture Firm in the World” in 2014, and the Smithsonian/Cooper Hewitt’s “National Design Award for Architecture” in 2009.
