Jessie Catenacci

AIA, LEED Green Associate

Senior Associate

What Human by Design means to me is about understanding how real people are going to use the spaces that we design and giving them everything they might need to thrive in those spaces.

As architects we have the privilege of getting to know and understand people and organizations through the collaborative design process. Jessie finds inspiration in the diverse personalities of our clients and the communities surrounding the spaces and buildings that we design. She chose architecture as a combination of her love of math and art, and she enjoys the challenge of creative problem solving. Jessie is a re-transplant to Pittsburgh since beginning her career with Perkins Eastman in 2012, having grown up in Ohio but with most of her extended family in Pittsburgh. She’s adopted the city as her own and strives to make it a more vibrant and inclusive city with a built environment that reflects its community. She currently specialized in Workplace design.

Our Perkins Eastman

Jessie is involved in the DE&I initiative in Pittsburgh within the office and in the local AIA chapter. She participates in and advocates for strong mentorship programs to help grow and strengthen our talented people.
