Adrian Smith, Gordon Gill, & Robert Forest

Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture (AS+GG) is dedicated to the design of high-performance, energy efficient and sustainable urban development and architecture at international scale. AS+GG approaches each project—regardless of size or scale—with an understanding that design has a unique power to influence civic life. The firm strives to create designs that aid society, sustain the environment, and inspire others to improve the world.

AS+GG utilizes an integrated design approach that emphasizes a symbiotic relationship with the natural environment—a philosophy the firm terms “global environmental contextualism.” This approach, which builds upon a site and/or building’s fundamental response to topography, cardinal orientation, daylighting and natural ventilation, combined with renewable energy capture and utilization technologies, represents a fundamental change in the design process in which “form follows performance.”

AS+GG’s designs are predicated on the understanding that everything within the built and natural environment is connected and that all design should stem from and be enriched by the interrelationships of local, regional, and global context.

AS+GG designers are celebrated global leaders in multiple disciplines, including architecture, urban design and sustainability. Firm expertise includes large-scale regional and urban district planning, infrastructure design and construction, high-performance supertall towers, corporate office, hotel and residential complexes, high-end retail, cultural facilities, museums and exhibition facilities, educational buildings and high-tech laboratories.
