Nationally recognized architectural, planning, and interior design firm Looney Ricks Kiss (LRK) is pleased to announce Tony Pellicciotti, AIA, CDT, LEED AP BD+C, as managing principal of its staff of over 120 across eight offices.

Pellicciotti is one of LRK’s fourteen principals representing its markets in Memphis, Dallas, Philadelphia, Orlando/Celebration, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, Little Rock, and Princeton, N.J. Pellicciotti has been with LRK for over 27 years and has consistently demonstrated outstanding project leadership, fostered collaboration, and achieved creative solutions for LRK's clients. 

“With a broad, diverse range of project experience, Tony has helped establish LRK’s national expertise in historic and adaptive reuse projects. Tony practices LRK’s culture of collaboration in every project and interaction. He embodies the LRK philosophy both personally and professionally,” said Frank Ricks, FAIA, LRK founding principal, based in Memphis.

“He believes that thoughtful design inspires and motivates people to be, and to achieve, more than they thought possible, and we are confident that he will bring the same attributes to his new role," said Ricks.

GUIDED AWARD-WINNING CROSSTOWN CONCOURSE

Pellicciotti’s practice has guided and led to the social, economic, and critical successes of internationally acclaimed projects such as Crosstown Concourse, the world’s largest historic, adaptive-reuse LEED Platinum–certified project and winner of a Platinum Award in Building Design+Construction"s 2018 Building Team Awards.

He was also instrumental in the design of the Tennessee Brewery, Chisca on Main, and Orion Federal Credit Union Headquarters. Such examples have lended LRK’s adaptive reuse expertise across the country, with projects in the pipeline including current high-rise projects in Philadelphia and Salt Lake City.

Pelliccioti’s projects over the years have been recognized with numerous industry awards and featured in Building Design+Construction, MULTIFAMILY Design+Construction, Architectural Digest, Metropolis, and Contract.

“One of LRK’s greatest strengths is its mindset of a small firm, family culture, and, simultaneously, the horsepower and skill sets of a large firm," said Mike Sullivan, LRK principal based in Baton Rouge. "Built into this culture is the flexibility for team members to learn, grow, and develop expertise in project types ranging in scale and architectural stylistic responses,”

It’s an imposing 450,000 square-foot structure—a 240-foot-wide by 240-foot-tall cube. The gleaming aluminum cube risesthe equivalent of 24 stories from behind a grassy berm, projecting the unlikely impression that it might actually be floating. Like most visually striking structures, the building has drawn as much scorn as it has admiration.
