The most populous state of the United States of America, California is considered a global trendsetter in communication, innovation, entertainment, popular culture, information, and environmentalism. Housing three of the world’s ten largest companies, being also the largest sub-national economy in the world, you’ll also find some of America’s top architecture firms in California, resulting in the state’s diversity and a welcoming approach towards integration of cultures and traditions of the world.

The top architecture firms in California can’t be left out from the story of the state. The evolution of California from being inhabited by Native American tribes to being a Spanish colony and later a part of Mexico till the Mexican-American War, can be traced through the city’s historic structures from these times- 18th-century Spanish architecture, mid-19th-century Gold Rush architecture, and the Victorian and Neoclassical architecture of the later 19th century. The Gold Rush of the mid-19th century brought change to California, imparting wealth and power, still visible in the state’s Victorian and Neoclassical buildings and private residences of wealthy families. There are several world class architects in California. The state’s list of architectural achievements is long and diverse with William Pereira’s sharp spire, Julia Morgan’s attention to grand detail, and Frank Lloyd Wright’s dramatic archways.

RTF team has tried to bring the top architecture firms/ architects in California in the following list, but before getting to that, let us learn a bit about what the California state is all about.
