Perkins Eastman, founded in 1981, and Ehrenkrantz Eckstut & Kuhn Architects (EE&K), founded in 1959, are merging. The companies will consolidate their New York, Washington D.C., and China offices (no word yet on EE&K’s L.A. office). Combined, the two firms will employ nearly 600 people.

Bradford Perkins, chairman of Perkins Eastman, notes: “EE&K brings an internationally respected large-scale architectural design practice, as well as a 50-year record of innovative educational facility design, a distinguished portfolio of historic preservation and adaptive reuse, and a growing practice in China and Vietnam.” Perkins Eastman has 13 offices worldwide, including offices in Guayaquil, Ecuador, and Mumbai, India.
