Committee, Awards (2011)
Conference, Speaker (Dubai, 2008)
Gordon Gill directs design teams in the creation of award-winning architecture across the globe. His work emphasizes a holistic approach to design that integrates all project disciplines. The results are performance based designs that work symbiotically with their natural surroundings- contributing to the sustainability of cities, augmenting the built landscape and creating an optimal user experience. Gordon’s work includes the design of civic facilities, large-scale mixed-use developments, city-wide master plans and the world’s first net Zero-Energy skyscraper, Pearl River Tower. This landmark project achieves energy independence through the harnessing of natural forces at the building’s site, exemplifying Gordon’s philosophy that architecture must strike a balance with its global environmental context. His work has been recognized by the American Institute of Architects, Architectural Record and has been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. Prior to founding Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture LLP in 2006, Gordon was an Associate Partner at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP and a Director of Design for VOA Associates.
