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. Recently we have gone on to design projects of varying typologies for clients including Vornado, WeWork, Uniqlo, and the University of Pennsylvania.

We’re motivated to create architecture rich in individual personality, local context, and highly social experiences because our mission is to facilitate those unique emotional bonds that form between people and their built environment. Each project is an opportunity to inspire and provide future social, cultural, and economic value for our clients and the communities they join.

Hollwich Kushner is a new kind of architecture firm – we are entrepreneurs who founded Architizer.com and were named in Fast Company’s 2017 annual ranking of the world’s most innovative companies.

Hollwich Kushner. Shape Tomorrow.

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.
