Search for world’s biggest architectural practice begins

WA100 2020 solo

BD has launched its survey to find the world’s biggest architect.

Now in its 16th year, the WA100 is an annual ranking of the world’s top one hundred firms.

The WA100 is the key reference for clients looking for architects on every continent. It includes detailed breakdowns of the biggest operators by work sector in each region of the world. It also polls architects on their feelings about the state of the world economy and the countries with the greatest potential for growth in 2020.

The biggest practice in the 2019 report – for the fourth year running - was Gensler with 2,627 architects. Foster & Partners was the top-ranked UK firm in 14th place and PLP Architecture made an appearance in the list for the first time.

The rankings are established by participating in the WA100 survey. To make sure you have a chance of making it into the world’s most authoritative list of international practices please click here
