about > Exploration


All aspects of the firm’s work are animated by the belief in the transformative power of research-driven design to deliver high performance buildings that create measurable value for clients, produce an engaging and productive workplace, and build better communities.  While research is an integral part of Pickard Chilton’s design process, the firm invests significant resources into explorations that ultimately serve the needs of our clients.

From cutting-edge technology, to new and innovative structural materials, to state-of-the-art visualizations, to high performance enclosures, Pickard Chilton’s studio-wide research effort proactively seeks to strengthen competencies, broaden the studio’s portfolio, and increase the firm’s thought leadership. These explorations have consistently allowed us to efficiently deliver architecture of exceptional value and performance.
