Our History

KDG’s roots rest in the Kennard Design Group, which was formed in 1957 by Robert Kennard, a World War II and Korean War veteran who attended USC’s School of Architecture on the GI Bill. The firm provided architecture and planning services and became one of the largest and oldest African-American architectural firms in the United States.
