Back to Our People


Phil Dordai, AIA, LEED AP



Phil Dordai is an accomplished client leader with a strong background in management, design and sustainability advocacy for higher education clients. As a Co-leader of the firm’s New York City education practice, he brings a deep understanding of our client’s perspective based upon work for over 30 major higher education institutions during his career.  Phil approaches projects as catalysts for the change or renewal of each institution’s mission and vision; with the conviction that, by working as an integrated team, we can add a meaningful piece for campuses and institutions.

I am particularly interested in the intersection of architecture, landscape/nature and sustainability. Universities are our leading source of sustainable design innovation—both through direct research and aspirations to reduce waste and energy use through new initiatives that we embody and support through our plans and projects.
