Jon Pickard, William Chilton, and Anthony Markese share a formative background in the Midwestern United States, combined with an extensive record of success in designing complex, high-profile international projects. The resulting layered perspective informs all aspects of the firm’s work, as Pickard Chilton presents clients with a sophisticated, knowledge-based approach that emphasizes design vision, integrity, focus on client business objectives, and exceptional service.

As award-winning designers of iconic corporate buildings and campuses, as well as commercial high-rises, their carefully selected design teams apply the same exacting standards to work at smaller scales for academic and cultural institutions. The principals are deeply involved with every project, forming relationships with clients that typically lead to ongoing collaborations. If there is a signature Pickard Chilton “style,” it is one of energetically and respectfully relating to clients, collaborators, and communities.
