This year, 13 new firms have been added to Architectural Digest's hallowed AD100 list: 1100 Architect, Brian J. McCarthy Inc., Christoff:Finio Architecture, Décoration Jacques Garcia, India Mahdavi, Jan Showers & Associates Inc., Markham Roberts Inc., MR Architecture + Decor, Rafael de Cárdenas Ltd./Architecture at Large, S. Russell Groves, Sawyer | Berson, Toshiko Mori Architect and Veere Grenney Associates.
The January 2014 issue, on newsstands and online December 3, will feature the complete list of AD100 firms, as well as a section on designer/client collaborations featuring AD100 firms' clients such as Tom Ford, Jerry Seinfeld, Anna Wintour, Michael Bloomberg, Candice Bergen, Mark Wahlberg, Tory Burch, Tom Cruise, Diane Keaton, Sting and Tommy Hilfiger.
Since the list originated in 1990, ten AD100 lists have been published highlighting more than 375 firms. The following eight firms have remained on the list since the beginning: Appleton & Associates Inc. Architects, Cooper Robertson & Partners, Jacobsen Architecture, Mario Buatta, Robert A.M. Stern Architects, Stephen Shadley Designs, Terry Hunziker Inc., and Thomas Britt Inc.
“The AD100 is THE list in the architecture and design community,” said AD editor-in-chief Margaret Russell. “Earning a spot on the AD100 list can change the direction of your career. The designation is a true mark of excellence, our acknowledgement that an individual or firm is producing the kind of interiors and buildings—refined, innovative, and inspiring—that readers have long associated with AD.”
Russell hosted a star-studded gala yesterday evening at the Four Seasons Restaurant in New York City in honor of the AD100 firms.
