Who

Albert Kahn is a diversified group of great people. We speak different languages and come from various countries. We have diverse backgrounds in architecture, engineering, planning, interior and landscape design and management. Some of us have worked here for over 30 years while others are just getting settled in.

We are mothers, daughters, fathers and sons. We are grandmothers and grandfathers as well as grandchildren and great grandchildren. A number of us have worked on projects that have won awards and international recognition thanks to the combined efforts of everyone at Kahn.

Our Board of Directors and Strategic Board provide the structure and guidance necessary to carry on the Kahn legacy. Throughout its history, Kahn has been in the capable hands of some of the industry’s best leaders and innovators and we’re confident tomorrow’s leadership could be starting today.

Healing Designer

When Robert Sharrow, AIA, ACHA, LEED AP, was earning his master's degree in architecture in the 1970s, he was sometimes disillusioned. "The more I learned about architecture," he recalls now, "the more it seemed like we were only being trained to design homes for the wealthy or office buildings for corporations." Meanwhile, his wife was working as a nurse at a children's hospital, and Robb sometimes came in to look around and meet the young patients.

"It was just so sad the way that building was designed," he says. "I wanted to do something to contribute to society, and I started to think of hospitals as a building type that needed a good designer."
