History:
Perkins + Will is a Chicago based architectural firm that was founded by Lawrence Perkins and Philip Will in 1935. Their shared belief was that design had the power to transform lives and enhance society. In 1931, the partnership established mechanical and electrical engineering departments in Chicago.  Using interdisciplinary approaches, the firm has continued to create sustainable and innovated buildings across the world. Within the company there is a strong focus on environmental apsects, and in 2011 they had completed 100 buildings that were Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified. In 1999, Perkins + Will was  awarded the AIA Firm of the Year Award. Today, the integrated design firm continues to create modern architecture and push the boundaries of building design.
