Wilson Associates was founded in 1971 by design legend Trisha Wilson. Her early career was spent designing restaurants around Dallas, Texas. It was her meeting with famed developer Trammell Crow, however, that introduced her to the larger world of hospitality design.

After designing Crow’s Hilton Anatole (formerly Loews Anatole), a Dallas landmark, Wilson and her associates designed The Palace of the Lost city in South Africa, which solidified the firm’s global footprint.

Since then, Wilson Associates has designed some of the world’s most iconic addresses across the globe. From a designer hotel inside the world’s tallest building to royal palaces and Michelin-star restaurants, the firm’s legacy is rooted in a history of excellence.
