This monograph is an extensive volume published on the work of Pickard Chilton, the global architectural practice based in New Haven Connecticut. Picard Chilton has established an international reputation for designing corporate headquarters, mixed-use complexes, healthcare facilities and academic centers.
Illustrated with photographs, detailed drawings, sketches and model photographs, this monograph features a comprehensive selection of 45 projects from the firm's first 14 years of practice, displaying a wide range of project types and a high level of craft and elegance.

Thomas Fisher, Dean of the College of Design at the University of Minnesota and former editor of Progressive Architecture magazine, has written an insightful introduction entitled "Building Good Relationships" that discusses one of the greatest contributors to the firm's success: their relationship-focused commitment to their clients, colleagues and consultants.
An essay by firm principals offers an intimate look at the inner workings of the studio, its collaborative and inclusive design approach and its artful application of the latest technologies to communicate and realize design intent.
