Architect Acquires Majority Share of Gwathmey Siegel, reports the New York Times yesterday.
Ever since Charles Gwathmey died in 2009 people in the architecture world have wondered what would become of his partner, Robert Siegel, and the firm they founded in 1968, Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects.
Now the answer is clear: the architect Gene Kaufman has acquired a majority share and the firm will become Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman & Associates.
Mr. Kaufman’s own firm will retain its name, Gene Kaufman Architect (GKA). In addition to serving as the principal of the new Gwathmey Siegel, Mr. Kaufman will serve as the chief executive of both firms. Mr. Siegel will continue in a leadership role at the firm.
“We wanted to increase the body of new work,” Mr. Siegel said. “Our design expertise combined with his development expertise will make projects more likely to happen economically but also be much more exciting from an architectural point of view.”
