Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) is a collective of architects, designers, engineers and planners, responsible for some of the world’s most technically and environmentally advanced buildings, and significant public spaces. From a strategic regional plan to a single piece of furniture, SOM’s designs anticipate change in the way we live, work and communicate, and have brought lasting value to communities around the world. The firm’s approach is highly collaborative, and our interdisciplinary team is engaged on a wide range of international projects, with creative studios based across the globe. We are driven to answer the most urgent challenge of our time—to protect the Earth’s resources and support the transition to a zero-carbon economy. We must take responsibility, individually and collectively, for the future of our planet. We place sustainability at the core of every project. With a holistic approach, we work to reduce carbon impacts across a building’s entire lifespan: from materials, to construction, to everyday energy use. We bring together design experts from every discipline and office to guide a holistic approach to environmental leadership and advance strategies that can decarbonize our cities, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and address the impacts of climate change. We measure every project against these goals. Read more about sustainable design at SOM here.
