Arthur Pinkham, a.k.a “Chip”, comes to EJA with more than thirty years of experience in a variety of building types and scales from residential interiors to City Planning and Urban Design. His academic experience in architecture began as an undergraduate at Cornell University where he won the Edward York Memorial Prize in design and he went on to receive an M. Arch. From MIT. Throughout his professional career he has pursued a balance between architectural design and the reality of building technology and construction practices as he believes that the two are inseparable. As a senior member of the firm he has become the building technology guide and educator for the firm’s junior members.

Additionally because of his interest in digital design technology he was able to spearhead the firm’s first efforts at digital parametric modeling, on the Providence Park Pavilions, an advanced technique that allows designers to rapidly investigate multiple iterations of a building’s design through computer programming.

His first major design contribution at EJA was on the site and exterior building design for the Performing Arts Center at the College of The Holy Cross which focused on harmoniously integrating a complex building program into a verdant pedestrian network.

At EJA he has also lead the firm’s efforts on design and construction documentation and administration for high end residences including the Gloucester Residence, the Lexington Residence, and the Rockport Residence.

He is a licensed architect in Massachusetts, and a LEED Accredited professional.
