It would be fair to say many an architect or architectural firm gets known for designing a predominant genre of building, and that appears to have been the case since the earliest days the trade first appeared in Indianapolis. Of course, this would never preclude an architect best known for designing one type of building from taking on another genre. Work is work, after all–but a satisfied client is likely to be a returning client. And if the returning client dominates one area of development, it follows that the favored architect would be asked to crank out more of its successful genre. An architect known for office buildings may not be called upon to design a spacious retail location. Would you be likely to have the same architect designing apartment buildings as private homes? Not necessarily.
