Few architecture firms live out the rigors of a century. According to DesignIntelligence?s Almanac of Architecture & Design 2010, the Lexington, Kentucky-based Mason & Hanger has been in business for 183 years, making it the oldest in the United States. A mere 58 years its junior, New York City?s HLW International is celebrating its 125th birthday this year. The firm?s progenitors designed some of Manhattan?s most iconic projects, including the Barclay-Vesey Building at 140 West Street (1926), Western Union Building at 60 Hudson Street (1930), and the Irving Trust Building at 1 Wall Street (1931).
