We’re chatting with Thomas Gluck and Stacie Wong of GLUCK+ about architects who build.

Named by Fast Company as one of the top 10 most innovative companies in architecture, GLUCK+ is recognized for Architect Led Design Build: single-source responsibility with architects leading the building process. For over 40 years, the practice has committed to pushing the boundaries of design with real-world expertise to craft bold and conceptually unique architecture. Most work is constructed by the firm.

Notable award-winning projects include Cary Leeds Center for Tennis & Learning, a public/private project for NYC Parks and Recreation and the educational non-profit, New York Junior Tennis & Learning; Bridge, a LEED Gold high-rise mixed-use development in Philadelphia’s Old City; The Stack, the first steel and concrete modular residential development in New York City and Pilkey Laboratory, a LEED Gold research facility for Duke University Marine Lab. The firm recently designed and built 145 Central Park North, a rare opportunity to add to the street wall surrounding New York City’s iconic Central Park, and ONStage at Kaufman Astoria Studios, the latest new building to complete George Kaufman’s vision for the historic film studios campus.
