John Sadlon, AIA, IIDA, Principal, Corporate Interiors, Perkins&Will New York From an early age, John remembers being inspired by the architecture of his bucolic hometown Cazenovia in upstate New York, an area renowned for its rich diversity of architectural styles. It seems that he always knew he would become an architect; it perfectly balanced his interests in creative problem-solving, functional practicality and contextual design. Early in his career, John focused on ground-up new construction and adaptive reuse projects before pivoting to workplace interior architecture, specializing in complex headquarters projects for national and global clients. John is a respected business leader who is dedicated to the role of “client advocate” – strategizing outcomes and minimizing risk on each client’s behalf. Among John’s most outstanding qualities are his acute perception of what is unspoken, and his ability to establish and foster enduring relationships with clients and colleagues alike.
