Philip Enquist, FAIA
Charles Moore Visiting Professor 2007
Mr. Enquist is an urban design and planning partner in the Chicago Office of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP. He has focused his work towards strengthening the physical, social, and intellectual infrastructure of cities. In his work, Mr. Enquist strives to create the underlying structure for humane and rational habitats, workplaces, open spaces, and agricultural areas on a rapidly urbanizing planet. Over the last two decades, Mr. Enquist has directed development and redevelopment initiatives for college campuses, existing city neighborhoods, new cities, rural districts, downtown commercial centers, port areas, and in the case of Bahrain, master planning an entire nation.
During his career, Mr. Enquist has collaborated closely with a wide cross-section of significant governmental and private planning entities. These include the cities of Shanghai, Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles and Orlando, Harvard University, Bowdoin College, the Kingdom of Bahrain, and others. A key to Mr. Enquist's work is his belief that long-term planning on urban, regional, and even national scales are both necessary and possible for the creation of a culture and ethic of sustainable development.
