Highly awarded New York firm offering master planning, architectural, interior
and product design services
Long-anticipated monograph of one of the most prestigious firms in the
Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects is a highly awarded, New York-based
firm offering master planning, architectural, interior and product design
services. The firm, which cites 'process and principles' and 'order and
intelligence' as its foundations, practices an architecture that grows
naturally from a quest for ideas and answers, rather than a pre-determined
aesthetic or rigid signature style.
This approach is seen in the diversity of styles and project types presented
in this major overview of Gwathmey Siegel's work. Selected from the more than
400 projects completed by the firm, the featured projects include residential,
(including the multi-awarded Central Park South Apartment), higher education
(including prestigious institutions such as Yale, Harvard and Princeton), art
galleries, office buildings, and museums, including renovations and additions
to Frank Lloyd Wright's iconic Guggenheim Museum in New York, one of the firm's
most celebrated and critically acclaimed works. Other projects include the
recently completed W Hoboken, a new landmark on the New Jersey riverfront and
Glenstone, a much-awarded museum project outside Washington DC.
Gwathmey Siegel & Associates received the American Institute of Architects'
highest honor - the Firm Award - for "approaching every project with a fresh
eye, a meticulous attention to detail, a keen appreciation for environmental
and economic concerns...and a strong belief in collaborative effort."
