Stanton Eckstut, FAIA, is a Principal and Board member with Perkins Eastman, one of the world’s foremost architecture and design firms. As a practicing architect for over 50 years, Stan has been a strong ambassador for Placemaking and the creation of iconic public spaces, with work that has focused on large scale mixed-use developments, transit systems, waterfronts, office buildings and higher education campuses that emphasize wellbeing, integrated design, and a lasting sense of place. Lower Manhattan, Downtown Brooklyn, Downtown Indianapolis, Hollywood & Highland, and the waterfronts of Buffalo, Yonkers, Hoboken, Long Beach, San Diego, and Washington, DC, have all been transformed by his visionary designs.
Central to Stan’s approach is a belief that the architecture of place should welcome the people who inhabit it and recognize the human scale. Stan’s projects have been recognized with various national and regional AIA awards as well as the prestigious Urban Land Institute Heritage Award. He has held positions on the Board of Trustees for the National Building Museum in Washington, DC, the New York State Museum Institute, the Urban Design Program of Columbia University’s Graduate School of Architecture, and as Chair of the Municipal Arts Society of New York’s Street Committee.
