As one of the world’s largest A/E companies, with a thousand people in a dozen offices on three continents, Perkins Eastman has significant reach and influence on the built environment. For most of a decade, he was a Director and design leader with William McDonough + Partners. His latest book, 'The Shape of Green: Aesthetics, Ecology, and Design' (Island Press, 2012), the first to study the relationships between sustainability and beauty, has been Amazon’s #1 bestseller for sustainable design. He also co-authored 'Women in Green' (with Kira Gould), launched Architect magazine's first sustainability column (2007-2010), and currently writes a regular series on design for the Huffington Post.

He also serves on the AIA Committee on the Environment Advisory Group. Lance has been featured in 'Metropolis' magazine’s “Next Generation” program and 'Architectural Record'’s “emerging architect” series, and he has been a Fellow of the Michael Kalil Endowment for Smart Design and a Resident of the Rockefeller Foundation’s Bellagio Center. Eco-pioneer John Elkington calls Lance “an inspirational guide to a future we can't wait to embrace,” and 'Builder' magazine says Lance “is on a crusade to revolutionize what it means to be sustainable.”
