Robert Brown

Principal, Corporate and Commercial, Boston

Robert’s career has been defined by challenging the status quo, a personal philosophy he developed during his years in architecture school: question everything; have confidence in your character; be brave enough to voice what makes sense. These guiding principles have informed his inquisitive, collaborative design approach, which recognizes good ideas and says “Okay, now show me two more,” knowing that the best solutions are often somewhere in between.

As the leader of Boston’s Corporate and Commercial practice, Robert has applied this mindset to decades of transformative urban design and adaptive reuse projects, as well as the design and delivery of some of Boston’s most iconic buildings and developments, like MIT’s Kendall Square initiative, the celebrated Exchange at 100 Federal, and millions of square feet of innovative, interdisciplinary developments in Boston and beyond.

“Question authority and be brave enough to voice what makes sense. That way of thinking is how I work.”
