This year’s installment of the Architect 50 is a testament to the program’s staying power and momentum. The depth and talent of the participating firms—160 completed submissions—was unparalleled. As always, we calculated scores in three categories (business, sustainability, and design) and added them together to create an overall ranking. This year, the biggest change came in how we calculated the sustainability ranking (see the methodology here).
The result? The list featured a nice mix of small boutique firms and giant multinationals, repeat winners and new practices that scaled the charts.
LPA ranked in at no. 45 on the Architect 50 list, with scores of 26 in Business; 23 in Sustainability; and 110 in Design.
