Creating attractive places in the public realm with more than fifty years of environmentally, economically, and socially responsible design.

Firm Description

Established in 1965, Hartman-Cox is a Washington, DC based firm that has continuously produced award-winning, imaginative and responsible design for institutional, educational and civic clients. The three partners, Lee Becker, FAIA, Graham Davidson, FAIA and Mary Kay Lanzillotta, FAIA, are actively engaged in the design and management of the projects in a highly collaborative environment.
