Our work has reshaped cities and changed minds.

Over decades of practice and generations of leadership, across continents and cultures, alongside countless partners and co-creators, our practice never stopped changing. We have been at the foundation of the Chicago School, at the forefront of building technology, at head-spinning heights of the world’s most beloved skyscrapers, and at the roots of healthy communities. Our work has reshaped cities and changed minds.

Through it all, we continue to do, dare, design. As we introduce our renewed, reenergized studio, we honor the journey that brought us here, and are profoundly optimistic about the future we will create—together.

“Only together can we truly invent.”

- Helmut Jahn

Studio / Doers, darers, designers

Jahn is among the most iconic names in architecture. Founded 60 years ago, our studio has reshaped cities and changed minds with a group of professionals sharing the same passion for architecture, design, and technology. Today, we are as energized as ever, building upon a culture of collaboration alongside the most innovative teams of engineers, fabricators, and builders to create architecture of authenticity and integrity. Having trust in our creativity, and by allowing space for experimentation, we believe we can design a better world.

Legacy / Helmut Jahn never stopped changing

He came to Chicago as a young immigrant not to fit a paradigm but to forge one. Today, the firm that bears his name is just as restless and curious, reinventing itself and the world around it.
