William McDonough + Partners has played a prime role in defining sustainable design for more than two decades. Founded in New York in 1981, the practice was relocated to Charlottesville, Virginia, in 1994, when McDonough became Dean of the School of Architecture at the University of Virginia. We have created pioneering architecture and community designs that consider the long-term consequences of design including the Herman Miller “GreenHouse”; 901 Cherry Offices (Gap Inc., now You Tube); the Adam Joseph Lewis Center for Environmental Studies at Oberlin College; the Ford Rouge Center Revitalization; and Sustainability Base, NASA's first space station on earth.
