One Of The World's Largest Design Firms Profiled

Its specialties range from urban planning to designing skyscrapers, shopping malls and hospitals, and now, Olympic venues...
In 1961, the firm hired urban design specialist George Kostritsky, a Harvard University professor, and changed its name to Rogers, Taliaferro, Kostritsky and Lamb. Seven years later, an exasperated receptionist who had trouble pronouncing the names shortened it to RTKL. The new name stuck."
