New York City Architects Practice Information
This famous American architect studio was based in Manhattan, New York, USA.
This New York architecture firm was founded in 1920 as Shreve & Lamb, a partnership of Richmond Harold (“R.H.”) Shreve, a Canadian from Nova Scotia, and William F. Lamb, from Brooklyn, New York, United States (U.S.)—Shreve was the administrator, while Lamb was the designer. The two met while working at Carrère & Hastings, and Shreve & Lamb was initially a Carrère & Hastings firm. In 1924 the pair decided to leave Carrère & Hastings and became an autonomous architectural company.
In 1929 Arthur Loomis Harmon, from Chicago, U.S., joined Shreve & Lamb, and the firm became Shreve, Lamb & Harmon. Prior to joining the firm, Harmon’s works included battle monuments at Tours, Cantigny and Somme-Py in France, a YMCA in Jerusalem, and the Shelton Hotel in New York, U.S.
