As Principal of Pickard Chilton, an architectural practice in New Haven, Bill has directed projects for leading corporate and institutional clients worldwide including the Eaton Headquarters in Cleveland; the ExxonMobil Office Complex in Houston; CalPERS Headquarters in Sacramento as well as projects in the Middle East and Asia. Based on the belief that the practice of architecture is a collaborative art, he will address how the relationships the firm cultivates with clients, consultants and construction professionals is translated into the design of its buildings.
