HOK’s founders—George Hellmuth, Gyo Obata and George Kassabaum—came from different backgrounds and perspectives. Yet they shared a passion for designing exceptional spaces and places for people. They also had an ambitious vision for establishing a diverse, enduring design practice. Today HOK’s specialist expertise and geographic reach extend to nearly every building type and continent. The HOK 2015 Design Annual showcases the timeless architectural values of function, structure, light, beauty and service to human needs that remain our guiding principles.
