USC Faculty Firms ranked in Architect Magazine's Top 50

Architect Magazine has released its 2014 Architect 50 survey, which ranks architectural firms based on performance in the areas of business, design, and sustainability. Rankings are determined for individual categories as well as overall.

 

Firms of two USC Architecture faculty members were ranked in the Top 50. Larry Scarpa’s Brooks + Scarpa Architects was ranked 7th overall, 8th in sustainability, and 9th in design. Steven Ehrlich’s Ehrlich Architects was 39th in business and 50th overall.

 

In determining the rankings, the magazine employs a complex methodology utilizing metrics ranging from a firm's profitability to participation in the AIA's 2030 program to the academic appointments held by employees.
