New York’s Rogers Marvel Architects to become two firms

The principals of the New York firm Rogers Marvel Architects, Jonathan Marvel and Robert Rogers, have decided to form two independent practices, to be known as Marvel Architects and Rogers Partners, respectively, they said in a statement.

After more than twenty years of great success collaborating as the principals of one of New York’s leading architectures firms, the two men came to a mutual decision to formally dissolve their current practice, they said.

“Rogers Marvel Architects has been an unqualified success,” said Jonathan Marvel in a statement. “The resulting spaces – both public and private – have won numerous awards, but more importantly, have contributed to the health and beauty of their communities," he added.

Together, Rogers and Marvel amassed a portfolio that includes high-profile projects such as the Studio Museum in Harlem, Pratt School of Architecture, 55 Water Street, State Street’s 14 Townhouses, Battery Park City Streetscapes and Security, Governor’s Island Park Master Plan, and many others throughout New York and the country.

Over the past two decades, each partner developed an increasingly individual style and approach, defining their own collaborative teams within RMA, as well as with colleagues on behalf of a wide range of clients.

“Our partnership has allowed both of us to grow into accomplished architects overseeing sophisticated projects – and for that I am deeply grateful,” said Robert Rogers.

“We naturally developed in two separate directions; the new firms will allow us each to pursue our visions and ambitions,” he added.
