BUFFALO, N.Y. — The next generation of buildings is here.
New York’s architecture firms are building their next generation.
The trend began with the creation of new firms in 2015 and is being replicated by a host of firms across the country.
This is where things stand today in the architecture industry.
The number of new architecture firms has more than doubled to more than 6,000 over the past year.
New businesses and firms have also been founded and expanded, and the growth in firms is evident in the rise of new companies like Cascadia Architects, Cascadian Architects, New York Architectural Press and New York-based design firm Burtons.
“In the last five years, the architecture community has seen an unprecedented boom,” said Mark Blumberg, president of New York City-based architecture firm Cascades.
In 2017, Cattetech Inc., a Portland-based firm that has done work for both President Trump and Trump administration officials, expanded into Boston.
Cattetecher has been involved in New York, San Francisco, Miami, Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, Seattle, Seattle-Tacoma, and other cities.
Blumburg said the firm has been working with architects for several years to develop its next generation, which includes new buildings in cities across the United States.
“We see it as an opportunity for us to bring architecture to a new generation,” Blumstein said.
The new architecture is being developed by a range of firms.
Burtons is the largest architecture firm in New England, with more than 600 employees in more than 60 locations.
It recently launched a new office in Boston, where it will build two new buildings with the support of the City of Boston, a city-owned agency.
Blumberg said the company is looking to develop a brand new office building in New Hampshire, with the city’s support.
“We’re in a transition period right now, so we’re looking for partners to help us build something unique,” Blamberg said.
The firms are also working with partners in other states to develop and expand new buildings, including New York State’s Department of Buildings.
“They are creating the new buildings right now and we are in the process of putting the finishing touches on them,” Blumpberg said of the state agencies.
Blumpburg said Cattecher will partner with a partner to create a new residential building in Boston and is working with another firm to do a new retail and office development.
These new architecture projects will also create new jobs.
Blumenberg said his firm has more work to do to create and maintain a high quality, sustainable, and livable building design that creates more of a sense of community.
“It is an incredibly exciting time to be in the industry, as we are at a critical juncture in the history of the architecture business,” he said.
Blumburg hopes the next generation architecture will be the “next big thing” in the field, noting that the industry has “grown at a remarkable pace over the last decade.”
