Since its founding by Max O. Urbahn in 1946, Urbahn Architects has continually provided comprehensive professional planning and design services for organizations and institutions that engage the public. Our substantial portfolio includes projects in the education, healthcare, justice, science, commerce, and civic infrastructure sectors. This diverse practice has formed in us the conviction that architecture has the power to manifest ideals, strengthen communities, and elevate civic discourse. Our work has touched the lives of people the world over. In addition to our extensive domestic portfolio, Urbahn’s work is represented in Asia, Africa, South America, and the Middle East.
Urbahn first rose to prominence in the 1960s, winning design commissions for the US space exploration program, national scientific research centers, and major hospital facilities. Today, we continue to undertake challenging and complex assignments, providing services as diverse as master planning, programming, energy audits, management studies, capital planning, construction administration, condition assessments, and historic preservation.
