Architecture & Design Panel
Carl is HOK’s president, managing principal of the New York, New Jersey and Philadelphia studios, and a member of the executive committee. He also leads HOK’s technical board, which directs global quality management and virtual design and construction initiatives.
With more than four decades of management and project delivery experience, Carl has expertise in the design and implementation of large, complex projects in the U.S. and around the world.
As a lifelong New Yorker, Carl is active in civic and professional efforts in the city. A Fellow in the American Institute of Architects, he serves on the executive committee and board of the New York Building Congress.
After receiving a Bachelor of Architecture from University of Texas at Austin in 1995, he immediately moved to New York City where, within a few years, he joined the Rockwellgroup. He spent 11 years as a Senior Associate garnering numerous awards and nominations for projects that immersed him in all aspects of hospitality and entertainment architecture. It was during those years that Josh mastered his ability to bring concepts of any size to the physical world while maintaining an exceptional level of custom, one of a kind, detailing.
Prior to joining Wimberly Interiors, Josh ran his own practice Josh Held Designs. It is with his cumulative experience and knowledge that brings his vision to an even larger group of clients while providing a high level of service and personal interaction than cannot be found elsewhere.
Top NYC Interior Designer Kati Curtis founded KCD in 2005 after 12 years of working with international architecture and engineering firms. She is a Certified Interior Designer (CID), and a Leadership in Energy and Efficient Design Accredited Professional (LEED AP).

A graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design, Kati is a sought after speaker and design influencer, and a contributor at conferences, on panels, and in the media. Kati Curtis travels frequently, and the colors, motifs, patterns and textures she sees, influences all she designs. A graduate of the prestigious Savannah College of Art and Design, Kati was recognized for her multifaceted vantage point and uncompromising aesthetic.
Kati Curtis was brought up with the value of giving back; she does this for the design community through her volunteer work for the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club and the Design Industry Foundation For Aids (DIFFA), where she recently designed the installation Masculine/Feminine for their annual Dining by Design fundraiser, and by teaching at the New York School of Interior Design. One of the top interior designers included in Access to Design from the New York Design Center, Curtis has served on the Board of Directors for the New York Chapter of the American Society of Interior Designers, The Northern California Chapter of the International Interior Design Association, and Interior Designers for Legislation in New York.
