Jon Pickard, William Chilton, and Anthony Markese have led the design of some of the world's most widely known buildings, creating iconic structures that have defined institutions, corporations, communities, cities, and countries.

Pickard Chilton believes that architecture can affirm a society's best aspirations and a client's cherished goals. They strive to create projects that offer their clients, and the public, measurable advantages–whether that means a building that stands out in the skyline and attracts the best tenants, or one that embodies the beauty of using resources lightly.

They give the art, function, and impact of a building their closest attention, believing that excellence in each facet of building design supports an inspired whole.
