Architectural Record has released the latest edition of its annual list of the “Top 300 Architecture Firms” in the United States, based on architectural revenue from the previous year (2017), as reported to Engineering News-Record (ENR) by firms that choose to participate.


While the rankings shuffled this year for many of the Top 25 firms in architectural record’s annual list, the No. 1 firm held fast to its position at the top. With nearly $1.2 billion in total revenue in 2017— more than twice that of any other company on the list— Gensler cinched the top spot for the seventh year running.


Despite reporting a slight dip in revenues from the previous year, Perkins+Will  moved into second place, bumping AECOM, whose revenues also fell, to third.
