About Paul Katz ↓

Paul Katz was the Managing Principal and President of KPF from 2009 to 2014. His career focused on the realization of large, complex, mixed-use projects in high-density center-city locations. Projects he helped bring to life include Roppongi Hills in Tokyo; Canary Wharf in London; Hudson Yards in New York; the expansion of Covent Garden and redevelopment of Earls Court in London; and the renovation of The Landmark complex in Central, Hong Kong.


About the Fellowship ↓

The Paul Katz/KPF Fellowship for Post-Graduate Study of the City was established in 2014 in honor of the life and work of Paul Katz. Two fellowships are awarded each year to assist international students in their pursuit of studying issues of global urbanism upon graduation from a masters of architecture program from the five East Coast universities at which Paul studied or participated as a teacher (Princeton, Yale, Harvard, Columbia, and the University of Pennsylvania.) The Fellowship is supported through the generosity of people who worked closely with Mr. Katz, including friends, clients, colleagues and KPF.
