Ford, Powell & Carson Architects and Planners Inc. has grown alongside San Antonio as the city changes.
SINCE LEGENDARY ARCHITECT O’Neil Ford arrived in San Antonio in 1939, Ford, Powell & Carson (FPC) Architects and Planners Inc. has evolved with the times – even when that called for a complete overhaul of the executive leadership team. It’s a matter of survival in the competitive Texas construction landscape, and FPC is well aware of what it takes to succeed.
“The thing that sets us apart from our competitors is that the firm is always renewing itself,” says Michael Guarino, principal of FPC. “We’ve just announced a completely new leadership structure for the firm, and even our best friends are a little startled at how young our new leadership is. But they are full of the kind of energy and creativity that has helped the firm weather wars, a depression and the greater changes of society as a whole.
