Joseph Culotta


Senior Associate

"I believe that architecture is a collaborative process, and through that process we can create architecture that reflects our culture, identity, and ideals."

Joe always loved art, drawing, and playing with Lincoln Logs, Erector sets, and Lego as a child. Combined with his affinity for math and science, he decided to pursue architecture in middle school. He’s been practicing architecture since 1999 and first started working at Perkins Eastman in 2000. He has worked in many different practice areas including Residential, Senior Living, and College + University, but his real passion has been working on and designing K-12 schools. Joe is driven by seeing the impact of our architecture on people. A new building that is well designed can improve the experience and perception of those who inhabit it. Hearing how much a student loves their school is the epitome of this concept. His favorite example is the Charter Oak International Academy in West Hartford, CT. The circular school was both challenging and exciting to work on, with unique spaces and relationships between the interior and exterior.
