RMJM Architecture in North America

The foundations of RMJM’s business in North America date back to before the RMJM partnership was first established when Robert Matthew was appointed to the post-war Committee of Anglo-American Productivity designed to explore methods of building faster and more efficiently. Whilst RMJM’s forays into North America throughout the 20th Century where sporadic and project driven, the acquisition of Hillier Architecture in the early part of the 21st Century established a firm foothold for RMJM on the East Coast.

Today RMJM have a presence on both coasts of the United States through offices in New York and Los Angeles. RMJM’s US Studios are “specialists” rather than generalists and their focus tends towards large institutional projects particularly in the fields of Healthcare (Los Angeles) and Education (New York). The specialist focus of these studios does not extend to their geographical outlook, which is very much global. RMJM’s US studios are passionate about bringing their sector specific design expertise into markets throughout North America; both the New York and Los Angeles teams are regularly found working in partnership with other RMJM Studios across all 5 continents in which RMJM are represented.

The geographical diversity of their most high profile projects is testament to the global outlook of the US Studios. Projects such as the Khoo Teck Puat Hospital and the Duke University Graduate Medical School, both in Singapore, the GlaxoSmithKline buildings in the UK & China and the new University campuses in Libya are just some of their most celebrated projects.

The success of RMJM’s US Studios internationally has, however, been founded on the completion of a significant and high quality portfolio of built work in North America, including, the Princeton University Hospital, Las Colinas Convention Centre in Irving, Texas; the Duke University Medical Centre in North Carolina; and the M L King Medical Centre in Los Angeles, California.Peter Morrison RMJM
