    CannonDesign’s St. Louis Office Celebrates 10 Years in Historic Power House

    In 2006, CannonDesign saw a rare opportunity for its St. Louis office in one of the city’s signature buildings: a vacant steam-heat power plant built in 1928 as part of the city’s post-World’s Fair economic re-development efforts. Ten years later, after a major redesign and adaptive re-use process that gutted its interior and created a new-meets-old design concept, the Power House is still generating positive energy for its occupants — our St. Louis headquarters — its neighborhood, and its city. We celebrate its first decade with a look back at its history and impact. When built, the Power House powered a dozen downtown city buildings, including City Hall, the Kiel Opera House, and...

    Peter McCarthy: Building on the Foundations of Food

    Architect Peter McCarthy knew where he was headed from an early age. With a mother insistent about her dreams for her son and a hands-on father always tinkering away in his wood shop, it was clear design was in Peter’s future. “My mother started telling me that she thought I was going be an architect somewhere around the age of eight. Things grew very quickly from there, in terms of being construction-minded, very hands-on,” says Peter. “When I was a kid, my tree fort in the backyard was published in the local newspaper. The history of architecture goes way back for me.” In addition to designing buildings, Peter also builds...

    Amir Rezaei-Bazkiaei: Advocating for Smart Design

    A self-described “intrapraneur” and “data geek,” Amir Rezaei-Bazkiaei finds joy in problem-solving and pushing for change inside an organization. With a Ph.D. in environmental engineering and renewable energy, Amir’s passion is using computational design methods to influence the design of net-zero and positive-energy buildings. As CannonDesign’s high-performance building analyst, he raises the performance bar daily by advocating for better energy efficiency, output and utilization through analysis. “Globally, 40 to 60 percent of all energy consumption is via buildings. They are the leading cause of greenhouse gas emissions. If we could change that, it would make a big difference,” Amir says. “If it was up to me, I’d mandate all new...
