Luckett & Farley CEO: 'Your reputation can’t live on yesterday’s work'

Most cities are lucky to have one signature structure so recognizable that people far and wide can name its location just by seeing its photo.

Louisville has two.

Debuting in 1895 as part of a new grandstand, the iconic Twin Spires of Churchill Downs were designed by 24-year-old Joseph Baldez, who thought the structure “needed something to give it a striking appearance,” according to a Kentucky Derby Museum post. 

Nearly 130 years later, there is perhaps no landmark that strikes thoughts of the city of Louisville more strongly than the Twin Spires.

And just like the Twin Spires, the Louisville-based architecture firm Baldez worked for is still standing.
