A leading design firm since its founding in 1880, Holabird & Root’s history reflects the evolution of American architecture. As the birthplace of modern architecture, Chicago has been home to some of the world’s greatest designers. The Great Chicago Fire set the stage for architects to invent new possibilities for the city and architecture.
It is here that Holabird & Root designed some of the world’s first skyscrapers that defined the Chicago School of Architecture. The innovation and originality that came out of this era continues to define our firm. Today, the firm’s influence on design can be seen throughout Chicago and the rest of the world. As we expand locally and globally, we will continually push the limits of what is possible for design and respond to our client’s challenges with intelligence and imagination.
As a full-service firm, Holabird & Root is dedicated to integrated solutions. A spirit of cooperation and curiosity is evident in our office where project teams of architects, engineers, and interior designers sit side-by-side, continually challenging each other to find the right answer for our clients. The firm’s reputation as a learning ground for architects and engineers continues as teams of experts and new talents combine fresh innovation with thoughtful experience.
