Architecture firm Hollwich Kushner, founded in 2007, is ringing in 10 years with a spot on Fast Company’s 2017 list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies. We’re thrilled for Hollwich Kushner co-founder Marc Kushner to join us at the Higher Ed Facilities Forum and share his award-winning design insights and vision for adaptive reuse success.

It’s not hard to see how the progressive New York-based studio landed a place in Fast Company for “making adaptive reuse sexy.” Led by Kushner and partner Matthias Hollwich, the firm’s high-profile opening of the Pennovation Center made waves for transforming a 20th century paint factory into UPenn’s new hub for entrepreneurialism.

Most impressive was that the Pennovation Center’s bold futuristic statement didn’t erase the building’s industrial character; in fact, HWKN used the infrastructure as a powerful architectural element. According to Fast Company, “It’s an example of adaptive reuse done right in a space meant to encourage innovation and forward-thinking—a hallmark for Kushner and Hollwich, who both double as tech entrepreneurs.” Among Kushner’s other notable successes is co-founding the must-read industry source, Architizer.com, in addition to penning his award-winning book “The Future of Architecture in 100 Buildings.”

We are looking forward to learning more about Kushner’s views on adaptive reuse and the future of design at the Higher Ed Facilities Forum.
