FitzGerald Celebrates 95 Years in Business

In recognition of 2014 marking FitzGerald Associates Architects’ 95th year in the architecture business (Founded in 1919 as Rissman and Hirschfeld), FitzGerald has brought together a visual representation of the firm’s path and accomplishments through almost a century of business and development in Chicago.

Featured among prominent commissions are the 1920’s home of Oscar Meyer, Lake Shore Drive co-ops, dozens of loft conversions, Parkside of Old Town replacing Cabrini-Green, and current work like the Arkadia Tower and the planned Atrium Village redevelopment.

The firm wasn’t without its economic ups and downs and the timeline reflects how the company, and the nation, maintained through the best and the worst times: from the Great Depression and World War II to the Baby Boom and a Man on the Moon, the firm was able to provide its clients with top-quality architecture and buildings that have stood the test of time.

Whether you’ve read about Rissman & Hirschfeld Architects in the 1920’s and 1930’s or have only come to know FitzGerald Associates Architects in the last few years, we invite you to peruse our history, explore our commissions, and let us know how we can help you with your work as we continue into the future.
