A life-long New Yorker, Steven Davis’ portfolio is diverse and reflects his ability to unite complex programmatic requirements with innovative design solutions. Mr. Davis is the designer of the National September 11 Museum at the World Trade Center. His involvement at the World Trade Center began in 1992 when he developed the Public Space Master Plan with the goal of reintegrating the complex into its Lower Manhattan context.

Many of Mr. Davis’ commissions are the result of high profile design competitions. L’Oreal’s North American research headquarters as well as the Related Companies’ Union Square South were both won through invited competitions. Mr. Davis’ design of a new residential tower for the Related Companies adjacent to the High Line in the Hudson Yards area of Manhattan was also the result of a competition. Internationally, Steven Davis won two competitions in Sao Paulo, Brazil: a 5.2 million square foot mixed-use development for Tishman Speyer as well as the expansion of Unibanco’s financial headquarters.

Other notable projects include the design of the Eskind Biomedical Library at Vanderbilt University and the design of headquarters, research, and manufacturing facilities on three continents for the Valeo, a French automotive components company. Mr. Davis’s work with Valeo led to the worldwide implementation of workplace design guidelines and implementation standards for the company’s 155 facilities in 55 countries.

Mr. Davis received the Presidential Award for Design Excellence for his design of the Data Processing Center in Maryland for the U.S. Bureau of the Census. Other awards for his work include numerous American Institute of Architects Awards for Excellence in Design and three Business Week/Architectural Record Awards for projects in which the design contributes to productivity in the workplace and embodies the culture of the client. His work has been featured in national and international publications.

Mr. Davis was elected to the American Institute of Architects College of Fellows in 1997 and he is a member of the Urban Land Institute. As an original member of the General Service Administration’s Federal Design Excellence Task Force, Mr. Davis has been active since 1993. He has served as a juror in many architectural design competitions and has been an invited critic at Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, Pratt Institute, the City University of New York and Parsons School of Design. Mr. Davis received a Bachelor of Arts degree from Bennington College and a Master in Architecture degree from the University of Pennsylvania.
