Since its founding in 1955, HOK has never been afraid to evolve. Its often subtle but always steady reinventions have created what today is an incredibly diverse practice. The firm’s ability to connect designers across building types, design disciplines and regions of the world is unparalleled.
Today, a huge variety of project types in every corner of the globe – from the scale of designing a corporate boardroom or suburban high school to planning an entire university or new city – are emerging from the intersection of many HOK minds and imaginations. HOK’s global community of design thinkers has been galvanised by the increasingly urgent need to create a sustainable planet while satisfying an enormous spectrum of human activities.
The more than 100 projects in this book are in architecture, interiors and planning categories. These inspiring built environments transcend their initial purposes to express timeless cultural, organizational and personal values.
