Rick Cook is a Founding Partner at COOKFOX Architects. Over the past 30 years, he has established a reputation for innovative and award-winning architectural designs.

For 14 years, Rick led the firm Richard Cook & Associates, where he developed a diverse portfolio that includes master planning, commercial, and residential projects. Notably, the firm was acclaimed for The Caroline, one of the largest new buildings ever completed in a New York City historic district, and 360 Madison Avenue, which involved repurposing the structure of the former Abercrombie and Fitch Department Store. In 2003, Rick founded COOKFOX Architects with a transformative vision: to create beautiful designs guided by high standards of sustainability. The studio's work features high-performance projects such as the Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park and 150 Charles, as well as generative place-making projects like City Point in Downtown Brooklyn. Currently, the studio is designing a new residential tower in the West Village, a Passive House apartment building at 335 Eighth Ave., and the Bruce Springsteen Archive and Center for American Music.
