Having already designed several nationally recognized, award-winning projects for the District of Columbia, our leadership made a further commitment to our community in 2011 by establishing Perkins Eastman DC. With international school-design expertise, we wanted to underscore how important our work is in the nation’s capital, where our team members represent a long tradition of school and civic design. Individually, our principals and staff have been at the forefront of new developments in the field of education and community design for over two decades. We are committed to designing sustainable, high-performance schools that conserve resources, enhance education and communities, and inspire the next generation of environmental stewards.
