Skidmore, Owings & Merrill är en amerikansk arkitektbyrå.

Skidmore, Owings & Merril grundades i Chicago 1936 som en ingenjörs- och arkitektfirma av Louis Skidmore och Nathaniel Owings; år 1939 trädde John O. Merrill in i företaget. Byrån öppnade sitt första kontor i New York 1937 och har sedan vuxit till en av världens största arkitektkontor med specialisering på stora kontorshus. Det var Skidmore, Owings & Merril som i stor skala introduerade modernistiska höghus med glasfasader. Firman har ritat några av världens högsta byggnader, till exempel John Hancock Center i Chicago 1969, Sears Tower i Chicago 1973 och Burj Khalifa i Dubai 2010.
