Hollwich Kushner is a leading architecture firm based in Lower Manhattan and winners of the prestigious MoMA/PS1 Young Architects Program where we built Wendy. We have gone on to design projects at every scale: intimate to awe-inspiring, and everything in between. Hollwich Kushner creates forward-looking buildings that place people first. We are a new kind of architecture firm that believes in entrepreneurship — we founded Architizer.com and were named one the World’s Most Innovative Companies by Fast Company.

Empowering Architecture

In 2009, Hollwich Kushner collaborated with creative agency KKLD to create Architizer. The site has rapidly become the world’s largest platform for architecture and design.

Architizer builds tools that are revolutionizing architecture. It publishes a must-read blog covering industry news and honors the best architecture, spaces, and products annually with the A+Awards program. We’re now in beta mode of Architizer Source, a tool that connects these same architects with the products their projects’ needs in a revolutionary new way.
