About

Adamson is a leading architectural practice, offering a full range of architectural, planning, interior and urban design services. Our portfolio encompasses projects in virtually every market sector — commercial; cultural; hotel and residential; justice; colleges and universities; hospitals and healthcare; airports and transportation centres; and large-scale, mixed-use development sites.

Established in 1934 in Toronto, Canada by Gordon S. Adamson, the firm is distinguished by its long history of design excellence, strong project management skills and exceptional technical expertise. During the 1980s, the firm extended its reach to the global marketplace. Acting as the Executive Architect or Architect of Record, Adamson contributed its skills to such prestigious projects as the World Financial Center in New York; Canary Wharf in London; and Petronas Towers/Kuala Lumpur City Centre in Malaysia. Through work on these complex projects and others, the firm became a respected authority on urban design, architecture and building technology.

While we continue to operate from our office in Toronto, Canada, today our team functions as a fully integrated practice that is global in reach with a staff of more than 450 dedicated professionals worldwide working from offices in:  New York City [AAI Architects, P.C.]; Los Angeles [Adamson Associates, Inc.]; and London, England [Adamson Associates (International) Limited].

Under the progressive leadership of our firm’s principals, Adamson remains at the forefront of the architectural profession.
