Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat

About Henning Larsen Architects

Henning Larsen Architects is a global architecture and urban design practice whose projects are rooted in a Scandinavian ethos. They shape, challenge and change the physical environment at every scale— from urban space and buildings to interiors and graphics— with the overall objective of delivering visionary, comprehensive, and sustainable designs that reach beyond themselves and become of durable value to the user and to the culture they are built into.

Since their founding in 1959, they have designed significant architectural landmarks and urban designs in over 20 countries – including the masterplan and several towers within the King Abdullah Financial District in KSA. HLA has merited numerous accolades, among which are the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture, and the Mies van der Rohe Award in 2013. Henning Larsen Architects practice in 7 offices worldwide.
