HISTORY:
In 1958, Alexander Ewing, at the time working for his father’s firm, joined with the in house architect Stanley Cole in order to design the expansion of the Rohm and Haas offices in Philadelphia. Although initially the design ran into trouble due to the site’s inability to accomadate the needs of the company, Ewing and Cole managed to switch the location to a new site on Independence Mall, not far from the Liberty Bell. The resulting design recieved countless praise from the city due to it’s ability to expand while maintaining respect fro the park as well as the surrounding historic buildings.
In 1961 the firm was officially established as Alexander Ewing & Associates, with their headquartes in Philadelphia. Over the years the firm has taken on many partners including Michael P. Erdman, Joseph P. Eubank, Robert Cherry, and Robert Parsky, all the time changing the name of the company to their credit. But in 2003, following the death of partner Paul Brott and the departure of Bob Cherry, the firm took on the new name of EwingCole.
