The World’s Largest Architecture Firms

There are plenty of Architecture firms in Malaysia and they do a pretty good job of making sure that your building stays relevant- design and practical wise.

That being said, they have a huge importance when it comes to the design and construction of a building, which is why there are already pretty established firms that have been in the industry for so many years.

BDOnline has released their WA100, which is an annual survey of the world’s largest architectural firms. The companies are ranked based on its number of employees, their financials, and how they adhere to and revolutionize interior design trends.

Gensler is still the top firm on the list, followed by Nikken Sekkei taking the second spot. But this year, there is a surprising contender in AECOM.

According to the representatives of BDOnline, Gensler’s apparent domination of the rankings stem from the company’s major increase in workers being employed during the last year- effectively increasing their net worth and production. The ranking entity pretty much employed more than 1000 employees in under 2 years- something that is not really done on any other firm in the world.
