The Best Modern Commercial Architects In America

Last Updated: August 8, 2014

Because of this relationship, we keep a close eye on some of the newest developments in commercial architecture. We noticed something missing online. And this was the lack of an up to date and in depth catalog of modern commercial architects in America (mostly the United States).

 

So we present to you “The Best Commercial Architectects In America”. This is an up to date catalog of whom we consider to be the best modern architectects. We have hand chosen one project from each architect to feature (sometimes not their most known project). 

We wanted to give you a diverse and interesting portfolio of work. It’s a good mix of skyscrapers, museums and public places mainly across the United States. The photos below are also a mix of sources. Many are from Wikimedia Creative Commons, but we also searched deep into the internet for beautiful photos from Flickr and Instagram.

Enjoy!
