Perkins+Will has a huge reach with offices in over 24 locations and a staff of over 1,500. The firm has won many awards, including the Honor Award for Civic Innovation, the Architecture Firm Award, and the National Honor Award from the AIA. In 2010 Perkins+Will completed the Antilia residence complex in South Mumbai, India. The complex, which according to The Daily Mail, "many Mumbai residents criticized as an ostentatious display of wealth in a country where most people live on less than $2 a day," has been decried as an example of the Indian upper class' lack of empathy for the poor. Each of the building's floors is made of different materials, which gives the structure a haphazard look.
