Middle East Architect Power 20
Monday, 12 April 2010

We all know the last year or so has been tough.

Even the biggest and brightest stars of the world architecture scene have felt the impact of the recession. Some established architectural practices have been forced to withdraw from the GCC region, while others have cut staff numbers. However, the main international players in general remain.

Middle East Architect has looked for those big name architecture brands that are still showing commitment to their work in the region and maintaining a local base. As a result, we’ve compiled a list of 20 of the biggest global architects working on the ground in the GCC.

Candidate companies were first selected based on global size, then ranked by regional presence - based on the number of permanent staff in the GCC. Some global firms took issue with the methodology, arguing that since a large proportion of its Middle East design work is carried out elsewhere, their rank would not represent their regional involvement. As a consequence, Foster + Partners, SOM, Allies & Morrison and Aukett Fitzroy Robinson do not feature.
