History:
“Hopkins Architects have helped pioneer British architecture since our founding by Sir Michael Hopkins in 1976. The Practice is now led by six Senior Partners and we are based in London, having completed projects throughout the world. Our deeply-rooted architectural, environmental and social convictions guide our designs and we work confidently and collaboratively in a manner appropriate to each client’s needs, ambitions and budget.

At the heart of the Practice’s organisation are Design Teams, which are formed to take a new project from inception to completion and ensure continuity of brief and design intent. These teams are led by a Senior Partner who collaborates on each project with leading engineers, cost-control consultants and other specialists. Experience has taught us that the best buildings come from close cooperation between ourselves, our consultants, and the client and their advisors and we approach every project with this in mind.

We take great pride in our adaptability throughout the design and construction process and we have worked with varied clients ranging from individuals to city councils to Boards of Trustees to developers. We work from offices which we designed ourselves in Marylebone that house a team of approximately 80 architects and staff. In addition, we operate a second Design Studio in Dubai and maintain Project Offices in Tokyo, Shanghai and Munich. The size of our practice has allowed us to gain a breadth of experience from projects in a variety of sectors while maintaining an intimate connection to the development of each design.” [Source]

History:
“The roots of Page, formally Page Southerland Page, Inc., extend back to a two person partnership formed by brothers Louis and Charles H. Page in 1898 in Austin, Texas. Louis Page Jr. and Louis Southerland, who had been classmates at MIT, formed the firm of Page and Southerland in Austin, and during the 1930s, completed landmark work for the Austin State School, Rosewood Housing (one of the first public housing projects in the United States) and the 1937 Austin City Hall, as well as houses for Lyndon B. Johnson and many other legendary Texas figures. Louis Page began what would become a strong link between the firm and academia by teaching at the University of Texas. His brother, George, joined the firm, expanding the name to Page Southerland Page.

In the mid-1900s, the firm became one of the first architectural firms in the nation to integrate in-house engineering design services to respond to the increasingly complex systems in healthcare projects. [Their] engineers are responsible for designing interdependent mechanical, electrical, plumbing, civil and structural systems for a wide range of projects.

Though now a large firm with multiple offices in the U.S. and abroad, Page has retained a rootedness in the communities it serves and an investment in making a long-term difference in the cities where it builds. There is a strong belief in the kind of cumulative placemaking that great firms have made in the past. The current Page practice is aimed at making that kind of difference in the 21st century through a sophisticated integration of civic involvement alongside progressive planning, urban design and architecture.” (source)

History

Although the title of ‘NORR Limited’ (Neish Owen Rowland & Roy) has only been used since 1986, the firm’s partnerships and traditions harken back to 1938 when John B. Parkin started his private practice in Toronto.  By 1947, he was joined by Edmund T. Parkin (Brother) and John C. Parkin (no relation).  Roy Marshall joined as a partner, in 1970, when John C. Parkin left to create his separate ‘Parkin Architects Planners’.  NORR now operates as one of the largest design firms in Canada. (Source)

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.
