Christian Calleri


Associate Principal

“Cities are an expression of our love for each other and for our planet.”

Above all else, Christian is dedicated to creating beauty with an emphasis on placemaking and memorable architecture. He is comfortable designing at many scales, as his twenty-year career has taken him from designing houses to university buildings, masterplans to  neighborhoods. This diversity of size and scope has made Christian a valuable participant on any project team, as his view is broad. Christian has come to specialize in Large Scale Mixed Use. This practice area best allows him to produce high-quality projects that deliver on the promise of placemaking and creating environments that support human connectivity and protect the natural world.

Our Perkins Eastman

Christian is an architectural polymath who is comfortable shifting scales and styles of design, and ways to think about what design is even for. He’s dedicated to cities and to protecting the natural world through his approach to design and through education at Perkins Eastman, where he runs the quarterly Pecha Kucha program. He also hosts many internal debates and discussions about the role of human diversity in our practice and in our lives.
