When we kicked off the design of our new Perkins Eastman Pittsburgh studio with an employee workshop in February 2020, we challenged our staff to consider their vision for how our new space could embrace sustainability and employee wellness and help guide the future of architecture. At the time, we didn’t imagine how prescient this exercise would become.
