James Carpenter Design Associates (JCDA) is a cross-disciplinary design firm working at the intersection of art, engineering and the built environment. Led by James Carpenter, the firm is recognized for its distinctive use of natural light, which serves as the foundation of its design philosophy.
JCDA brings a luminescent artistic sensibility to its designs, leveraging glass to mediate a dialogue between interior and exterior space, and to exploit the performative aspects of natural light. This approach is evident across its practice, including such major cultural projects as the Israel Museum’s expansion and campus renewal project in Jerusalem (2005-2011) and the recently opened Museum at the Gateway Arch in St. Louis (2010-2018). Major private projects, including the Gucci Japan Flagship building in Tokyo (2003-2006) and the “Ice Falls” water feature in the Hearst Tower (2002-2006), also create a layered, dynamic experience of the built environment through the spatial articulation of glass and light.
JCDA has been recognized with numerous awards, including the National Environmental Design Award from the Smithsonian Institution and the American Institute of Architects Honor Award. Mr. Carpenter received a MacArthur Fellowship in 2004 and "The Daylight Award" from the Villum and Velux Foundations in 2010
