Architecture firm Pickard Chilton was honored with two American Architecture Awards for its design of Northwestern Mutual Tower and Commons in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and the ATCO corporate campus in Calgary, Alberta.
The American Architecture Awards recognize the best new architecture designed and constructed by American architects and international architects with offices in the United States. Winners were announced by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and the European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies earlier this month and will be honored in October at a reception in Miami.

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.
Markese announced his role as a designer of the new Google campus in early June. The building, located at Cambridge’s Kendall Square, will be 16n stories and will contain 417,000 square feet of office space. The project involves demolishing a building at 325 Main St., constructing a new tower in its place, and connecting the new structure to a next-door building Google currently occupies at 355 Main St.
Pickard Chilton announced that it has completed, in collaboration with Kengo Kuma & Associates, the master plan for Global Gateway Shinagawa, a transformative redevelopment of the northern portion of Tokyo's Shinagawa Station and railyard.
