Robert Brown, AIA, IIDA, LEED AP, has joined the firm as a Managing Principal and the Corporate + Commercial + Civic + Culture Sector Leader for the Boston office.

With more than thirty years of experience, Brown is widely acknowledged as a key player in the New England design industry. Prior to joining Perkins+Will, he was a Principal at CBT Architects where he was involved in a series of prominent urban landmarks including 111 Huntington, the Belvedere, and the recently completed Atlantic Wharf project, Boston's first LEED Gold Certified high-rise.

Brown is a past President of the Boston Society of Architects, served on the Back Bay Architectural Commission and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino's Central Artery Competition Task Force concerning surface use of the Big Dig.

"His expertise and experience are a perfect fit with the goals of the firm and the office, allowing us to offer the highest quality of design and service to a broader range of clients.
