Firm Notes

In the early 1970s, John Carl Warneke and Associates was the largest architectural firm in the US, with main offices in San Francisco, CA, and New York, NY, and branches in four other cities. From Warnecke and Associates' earliest days, the firm developed a reputation as an innovator in in school planning. Between 1952 and Carl Warnecke's retirement before 1971, John Carl Warnecke worked simultaneously in two firms, Warnecke and Warnecke, Architects, and John Carl Warnecke and Associates, Architects. The latter firm succeeded his earlier firm, John Carl Warnecke, Architect (1945-1958).

A. Eugene Kohn (b. 1930) was the first head of Warnecke's NY City office; he later partnered with William Pedersen (b. 1938) and Sheldon Fox (1930) to create Kohn Pedersen Fox (KPF) Architects in New York.
