L. Ramu Ramachandran



“I believe creative design can transform space and people. Seeing architecture as a team sport, ‘keeping it fun’ is one primary measure of success—it’s the lens through which I look while crafting our designs and assembling our teams.”

Ramu enjoys the sense of discovery that permeates all that architects do. After more than twenty years in practice, his work has allowed him to enjoy creative partnerships with individuals, organizations, and communities, calling it “that special chemistry needed for positive and sustainable change.” As a project manager and creative architect, Ramu exercises a collaborative management style that helps bridge diverse viewpoints on teams involved in transformative private and public campus repositioning projects for Senior Living and Higher Education. His unique leadership and management style is focused on accountability – he believes that meaningful change is only possible when there is a shared and selfless commitment to team success.

Our Perkins Eastman

Ramu respects the craft in architecture. Commitment to sustainability and attention to the details, no matter how small, define his buildings and spaces. He treats every project as an opportunity for excellence in design and pushes the boundaries of the firm’s research and shared knowledge base. He sees Perkins Eastman as a living organization, pursuing creative design informed by function, wellness, and a deep commitment to sustainability, whether it’s a next-generation home for skilled nursing, an ultra-flexible healthcare floor in in a hospital, or adaptive reuse of our older college campus assets.
