Smith-Miller + Hawkinson Architects LLP is a New York City-based design studio in architecture, urban design, installations and exhibitions, objects and products. Across the United States and abroad, SMH+ has designed public and private projects including museums, parks, transportation terminals, performing arts spaces, privates residences, government facilities, a series of museum exhibitions and installations, as well as furniture and objects.

The studio’s work derives inspiration from an ongoing investigation into contemporary culture, its history, and its complex changing relationship to society and contemporary ideas. The work process is transformative in the way it reinterprets basic programs and negotiates traditional craft with vanguard techniques. The office is a laboratory for speculation and making, for investigation and practice: two strands that are woven together in all of the projects from the initial concept to their final realization.

Projects throughout the U.S. and abroad include the Corning Museum of Glass, the US Land Ports of Entry at Champlain and Massena, NY, The Dillion - an 83 unit residential building in midtown Manhattan, an Emergency Medical Services Station in the Bronx for the Department of Design and Construction, an installation at the Museum of Modern Art, a ferry terminal for Lower Manhattan, and a new private residence in Sagaponac New York. Important cultural projects include The Museum of Women’s History, The Shilla Daechi Building in Seoul Korea, Robert Greenberg’s private residence which includes a collection of Outsider Art, the Frederieke Taylor Art Gallery in Chelsea and The Rotunda Gallery and Slide Registry for the Borough of Brooklyn.
