Gwathmey Siegel Kaufman & Associates Architects LLC (formerly Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects) is a New York City-based architectural firm founded in 1967 by architects Charles Gwathmey and Robert Siegel. Gene Kaufman joined the firm as partner soon after Charles Gwathmey died of cancer in August 2009.[1] The firm's work ranges from art and educational facilities and major corporate buildings to furniture systems and decorative art objects.[2] Critics view Gwathmey Siegel's work as the stylistic successors of the formal modernism of Swiss architect Le Corbusier.[3] The firm is especially well known for its residential architecture, having designed homes for such famous clients as Steven Spielberg, David Geffen, and Ronald Lauder.[3]
