Jack M. Corgan, an avid pilot, founded Corgan in 1938. Some of his first jobs were designing movie theaters and drive-ins throughout the Southwest—locations he was able to reach by way of his own small plane. Over the years, project types expanded. Studios now continue to specialize in areas of our practice that were foundations of our firm, such as aviation, education and corporate office. Corgan also established long-term thriving practices in interior design, healthcare and mission critical facilities. Corgan is ranked among the top architectural design firms internationally, and has a staff of over 400 professionals in New York, Los Angeles, Houston, Phoenix, Dallas, Beijing and Dubai.
