A native of South Florida, Steven graduated from the University of Miami with an architectural degree in 1972, the same year that the Miami Dolphins won the Super Bowl to cap an undefeated season. Steven takes no credit for the Dolphins, but will occasionally accept recognition for the significant design projects spearheaded throughout the U.S. and South America, since Steven L. Cohen & Associates’ creation in 1974.
Steven’s passion for smart design and energy conservation has impacted the direction of Steven L. Cohen & Associates, with the firm incorporated LEED (Leadership in Energy and Design) practices. His commitment to preserving natural resources and intelligent urban design is reflected in the firm’s leadership role in the profession and involvement in community affairs.
In addition to the firm’s projects, Steven has been instrumental in developing projects of his own, including office buildings, shopping centers and residential communities. This experience is invaluable to clients when organizing budgets, bidding, negotiations, construction scheduling and management.
