How Architects Name Themselves

This week’s architecture critic, Witold Rybczynski, Hon. ASLA, has an interesting piece on the history of naming architecture firms. The Dirt is glad that Witold mentions the most noticeable trend: the “+” replacing the ampersand “among the smart set.” If you’re just setting out with your own firm or just dreaming about it, give the whole article a read. And to add in two cents, make sure to check that the web address that matches your firm name is still available!

    Great article.
    As a graduate in Landscape Architecture I have always been seduced by the power and seductiveness of words.

    My first studio (land based)was called, Archifolia.

    Now I practice on the west coast of Vavcouver Island specializing in coastal and island properties, change name:

    ultramarine tidal atelier

    A name is just a name…..
