Cooper, Robertson & Partners is an architecture and urban design firm based in New York City which provides design, programming, and development services to institutions, public agencies, private landowners, and property development clients.
Founded in 1979 on the core conviction that architecture and urban design are inextricably linked, the firm has steadily grown from a company of six people to its current size of seventy designers and support personnel engaged in the execution of major urban design and architectural commissions worldwide.
Rather than being guided by abstract theories or a predetermined style, we tailor each project to its individual site, the immediate and regional surroundings, its cultural roots, and to its program, schedule, and cost requirements. We have found this approach to be as appropriate to the single-family house as to the largest urban design projects. No building or design component is seen as separate from its immediate landscape and overall environment. This approach naturally ensures that sustainability is an organic and fundamental aspect of all our work. A traditional approach to design is inherently "green."
Our approach to design for schools and universities, for instance, is both sustainable and carefully tailored to student and teacher needs. Learn about our Design for Learning studio and its evidence-based approach by clicking here.
