Established in 1938, the family-run architecture practice had a major influence on post-war Manhattan. Renowned for his upscale apartment buildings, founder Emery Roth renamed the New York-based firm with the inclusion of his two sons, Julian and Richard, who were also practicing architects and made partners. In the early 1960s, Richard Roth's son, Richard Roth, Jr., also joined the firm, becoming the third generation of Roth architects, and eventually rose to become a chief architect and shareholder. The practice expanded for the next six decades and remained a family business through the 1990s.
