Welcome to our Boston studio
Here in the home of the American Revolution, we’re proud of our rebel roots. We hold fast to our values—diversity, collaboration, and innovation—and we’re only half-joking when we tell people to run until apprehended, because we see our studio less like an office and more like a test lab. Ingenuity is embedded in the fabric of our practice, blurring traditional boundaries between disciplines. We take advantage of our city’s world-class academic institutions, actively seeking new perspectives for a fresh, dynamic atmosphere.
In an era of high-stakes uncertainty, Jacob Werner weighs in on strategies and best practices for laboratory resilience in a new guide book for I2SL, the International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories.

The pilot Black in Design Mentorship Program will connect students from the Harvard GSD and Boston-area high schools with Perkins&Will professionals in an effort to promote greater representation of Black talent in the design industry.
