BUILDING CONNECTIONS, PERKINS EASTMAN AND VIA ARCHITECTURE MERGE
We are pleased to announce the merger of Perkins Eastman and VIA Architecture. This union of our two firms provides an opportunity for collaboration across our firms’ disciplines and studios. With the merger, VIA is now known as ‘VIA – A Perkins Eastman Studio.’ VIA will continue to build on its legacy of leading city-shaping projects, with expertise in infrastructure architecture, transit systems alignment design, multifamily design, transit-oriented development, and urban planning..
We are so excited to announce that the Empress Assisted Living + Memory Care Seniors Apartments recently topped out, a significant milestone for this transformative project and its soon-to-be residents. Our hardy congratulations to the project team for all the hard work!
Our dedication to building communities goes beyond design. At VIA, we believe that sustainable and thriving communities are those where residents invest and reinvest to support a positive and productive future.
We invest in our communities. Over the past three decades, we’ve provided thousands of hours of pro-bono design work, volunteer labor for community events and benefits, and participation on countless committees, workshops, and competitions devoted to improving the places where we work, live, and play.
Our team doesn’t just design transit stations, we use them too. The vast majority of our team members use transit, walking, or cycling for commuting to work and travel to business meetings.
We recognize the importance of building our future by building talent. We actively support students and architectural and planning interns to increase job skills and ensure qualifications for future generations of the profession.
At VIA we are always interested in starting conversations with like-valued professionals who will enrich our culture with new ideas and approaches, regardless of whether we are currently hiring for a specific position. To submit an expression of interest, please forward a resume and graphic samples of your work by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
