Reflecting the evolving stewardship of grandfather, father and son, the ROSSETTI legacy is based on a deep understanding of the clients and interpreting their individual aspirations for a transformative impact on their culture and economics.
The ROSSETTI legacy began with Louis Rossetti. In 1929, Lou was invited to develop an architecture division at the new engineering firm of Giffels & Vallet. Under his leadership, it would become the world’s largest, most complex integration of engineering, architecture and planning disciplines.
Louis “Gino” Rossetti was immersed in technical design for large projects while working with his father at the newly named Giffels & Rossetti. In 1969, Gino started Rossetti Associates to be more involved in 'people projects' to create an immersive, design-centric environment with forward-thinking design.
Aligned with his grandfather and father culturally, Matt Rossetti adopted the practice of ‘serious fun’, an expression that defines the ROSSETTI process today. Matt assumed leadership in 1999 and changed the firm name to ROSSETTI to combine his passion for sports and entertainment with architecture and design.
