Housed in the landmarked former Jewelers Building, JAHN is a unique architectural firm conceived to meet the challenges posed by the new millennium. A particular emphasis of the firm is on sustainability and the challenge of creating forward reaching buildings which will endure the test of time, becoming a source of pride for owners, users and communities. Under the current leadership of Helmut Jahn and Francisco Gonzalez-Pulido the practice has grown and evolved steadily from the original firm, which was founded more than 70 years ago.
Behind the Scenes Access: Visit the firm’s 3rd floor offices as well as the dramatic cupola at the top of the building, once the infamous Stratosphere Lounge.
Building Architect: Giaver & Dinkelberg, 1926
