About

Member Since: 2018

Member Offices: New York City

Website: http://www.shoparc.com/

SHoP Architects was founded to harness the power of diverse expertise in the design of buildings and environments that improve the quality of public life. The studio's inclusive, open-minded process allows them to effectively address a broad range of issues in their work: from novel programmatic concepts, to next-generation fabrication and delivery techniques, to beautifully crafted spaces that precisely suit their functions.

The studio set out to prove that intelligent, evocative architecture can be made with real-world constraints. Today, their interdisciplinary staff is implementing that idea at critical sites around the world.

SHoP Architects 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.
