LA500 2024: Jenna Knudsen

Managing Principal, CO Architects

Knudsen, the managing principal of CO Architects, has led award-winning, large-scale academic, laboratory and health care projects on university and health care campuses across the country. CO Architects ranked No. 4 on the Business Journal’s list of architecture firms based on last year’s billings in the county. Knudsen was instrumental in transitioning the firm from computer-aided design to building-information modeling, for which she has been recognized nationally. Last year, ground was broken on the $1.7 billion redevelopment of the Harbor-UCLA Medical Center campus near Torrance; CO Architects is one of the companies on the design team. The company is also helping to design the revamp of City of Hope’s flagship campus in Duarte. The firm has also designed several campus modernizations for the Los Angeles Unified School District, including one for North Hollywood High School that is nearing completion. Knudsen also has been a long-time advocate for equal representation. The Business Journal last year named her the CEO of the Year, among large and midsized company chiefs, at its Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Symposium and Awards.
