PREFACE Represented throughout this portfolio is the intersection between HOK’s thought leadership in specialty areas – healthcare, technology, airports, interiors, urbanism, sustainability – and our commitment to design excellence. We consider each project, no matter its purpose, to be deserving of quality. As reflected on these pages, the everyday environment of a transportation center or a hotel lobby receives as much care in design and detailing as the specialized facilities of an airport or a research lab. We believe every setting offers the opportunity to create a meaningful and memorable place. HOK solves the challenges of environments around the world through the exploration and analysis of site, purpose and form. An entrance canopy at a New York City hospital comes from the same rigorous approach as a vast mixed-use development in China. We are able to design a wide spectrum of building types in various locations through the multidisciplinary teams of our global practice. We apply our place-making skills to corporate campuses, financial districts, research parks and residential communities. The density required of these large, transformational areas is often achieved
