Chicago, IL, US



Professionally trained in Architectural and Environmental Design, Josh Pabst has a substantial portfolio of diverse project types throughout the U.S., China, Korea and South America.  These include office complexes and high-rise commercial towers, residential and hotel developments, and master planning for new sustainable cities.  He has participated on multiple international design competitions and has also been a key team member for projects that are built or under construction.   

Throughout his career, Josh has focused intensely on the architectural design process, beginning with the analysis of cultural context.  Often involving travel, this investigation affords him firsthand experience of different environments and enables him to create a unique sense of place and identity for each project.  For the 2010 World Expo Josh traveled to Shanghai to work side-by-side with the local architect designing a 9,000 sq meter exhibition hall, and he recently spent time in Korea working on one of the most high-profile residential developments in Seoul.

His work showcases integration of innovative sustainable and efficient design with architectural clarity and quality.  In this expressive sustainability approach to design, solutions to environmental demands become a source of aesthetic inspiration rather than a formulaic response.
