Robert May


Robert has been the Design Lead of HWKN for the past 14 years. He brings a keen eye for detail and a vast knowledge of design techniques to the firm. He helps teams strategize, plan, and fine-tune their approach across all typologies. Robert’s tenure led him to spearhead the Purposeful Beings initiative, a retrospective analysis of HWKN’s past work that was brought to life in the form of sculptures. He has led several HWKN projects including the Young Architecture Program’s winning entry, Wendy, at MoMA PS1, Journal Squared, a three-tower, high-density transit-oriented development in New Jersey, and Pennovation, the innovation center of the University of Pennsylvania.
