Join COOKFOX Architects at its office for drinks, informal conversation, and a behind the scenes look at recent and upcoming projects. This program is part of First Friday, a monthly opportunity for League members to visit the offices of leading design practices to see work on the boards and learn more about the offices’ organization and design processes. These informal social gatherings feature happy hour drinks arranged by the host office.
Founded in 2003 by Rick Cook and Bob Fox, COOKFOX Architects is a New York-based architectural studio that seeks to combine innovative design with environmental responsibility. COOKFOX is the first architectural firm to design three LEED Platinum projects in the city: the Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park, a full-floor interior in the Empire State Building, and the firm’s own studio. COOKFOX served as an advisor to Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s Office of Long Term Planning and Sustainability. Other recent projects range from the Hegeman, a residential community commissioned by Common Ground Communities for low-income and formerly homeless individuals in Brownsville, Brooklyn, to the Friends Center at Angkor Hospital for Children, an outreach center at a hospital in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
Work in progress includes the mixed-use CityPoint development in Downtown Brooklyn, 510 West 22nd Street in Manhattan, and the Footprint Power Salem Harbor Station in Salem, Massachusetts. The firm is the recipient of the NYC Public Design Commission’s Award for Excellence in Design for both CityPoint and One DeKalb as well as numerous U.S. Green Building Council Awards for projects such as Live Work Home, Stephen Sondheim Theater, Lucida, and One Bryant Park.
