Ann Nyberg interviews Jon Pickard, William Chilton and Anthony Markese
What do a luxury hotel in Abu Dhabi, the Exxon Mobil Global Campus in Houston, the Wells Fargo Headquarters in Des Moines, and the Uber Sky Tower have in common?
They were all designed by the international architectural firm, Pickard Chilton. The prolific company has designed projects all over the world, including such buildings as Google’s new headquarters in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Norfolk Southern’s new headquarters in Atlanta, and the Global Gateway Shinagawa in Tokyo. On Nyberg, the three firm principals, all originally from the Midwest, talked about the firm’s roots, their projects through the years, and what the future may hold.
The firm’s first project in Connecticut, the Barack H. Obama Magnet University School in New Haven, will open later this year.
