FortyEighty Architecture (fromerly dggp Architecture) was established in July 2002, as the result of the merger of two firms, Davis+Gannon Architecture and Gardner+Pope Architects. Gardner+Pope Architects was established in 1991, and Davis+Gannon Architecture was formed in 1994. The creation of the new firm combines the capabilities and strengths of its predecessors to provide clients with award-winning design talent, experience in projects both large and small, and an intense commitment to the practice of architecture.
