Ricardo Zurita Architecture and Planning, P.C. (RZAPS) has produced a wide variety of projects of all scales including master planning and designs for new buildings, renovations and historic preservation. RZAPS has become widely recognized for their long term involvement as lead architects for the redevelopment of Randall's Island - the largest public park project in New York City in over a half century where they have designed a number of highly praised additions to the island including Icahn Stadium and Sportime/ John McEnroe Tennis Center.
The firm's portfolio includes projects with significant public impact and a surprisingly wide spectrum of scale and type including master planning and the design of buildings, outdoor spaces, interiors, even public art.
The firm has steered projects through complex processes of rigorous review and public scrutiny, building consensus between groups of stakeholders each with his/her own set of values, responsibilities and expectations, effectively guiding projects to successful conclusions.
For clients renovating existing private spaces or creating new ones, the collaborative approach of the firm works particularly well, as architects, trades and crafts experts, and clients come together to create personal and durable environments that are simultaneously innovative and timeless.
