We choose to design for ecological and social well-being.
Cuningham is an integrated design firm. We choose to address society’s most pressing challenges through our work, emphasizing ecological and social well-being in everything we do. This purpose guides our practice at every level resulting in a unified approach and vision across healthcare, education, residential, workplace, hospitality, retail and entertainment markets. With offices across the U.S. operating under a highly collaborative studio structure, Cuningham pushes the boundaries of design every day to create a more resilient future.
When John Cuningham founded the firm in 1968, he sought to design spaces that inspired. By pioneering an inclusive and collaborative model of architecture, Cuningham grew from a small practice into a national firm with a global presence. Throughout our 50+ years of growth, we’ve remained steadfast in our mission: Together, we create enduring experiences for a healthy world.
As stewards of nature-positive design, we leave our communities healthier and more resilient as a result of our involvement. Cuningham is a signatory of the AIA 2030 Commitment, and we are dedicated to regenerating natural eco-systems by modeling, measuring, and reporting reductions in energy use, water use, and carbon emissions in both our projects and internal operations.
Equity + Justice
To design for our communities, we must reflect those communities. Cuningham commits to being a leader in creating an equitable, inclusive, and just firm that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve.
