Portrait of Pam Campbell.

Pam joined COOKFOX in 2003. From the start, she was an integral member of the design team for the Bank of America Tower at One Bryant Park, the first LEED Platinum skyscraper in the world. Pam was instrumental in attaining the LEED certification through coordinating the architectural component of the process as well as the New York State Green Building Tax Credit application. She also led the adjoining Stephen Sondheim Theatre project, the first LEED Gold certified Broadway Theater, completing all phases from conceptual design to construction administration, involving state level historic preservation approvals. Among other projects, Pam led the team for Live Work Home, a prototype for affordable, sustainable urban infill solutions that was named a winner of the international design competition “From the Ground Up” and completed in 2010.

Pam was the project manager for 150 Charles Street, a 92-unit residential building in Manhattan’s West Village. The project initiated new zoning text for the city that encouraged preservation of industrial buildings with stringent requirements for the use of urban landscaping.  She also led the Neeson Cripps Academy project, a STEAM school in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, serving the city’s most poverty-stricken children.

At the Domino Sugar factory site in Brooklyn, Pam was the partner overseeing the design of a new mixed-use tower on the Williamsburg waterfront and has overseen the design and county approvals for two new multi-family residential projects in the National Landing area of Northern Virginia.

Currently, Pam is the partner leading the Marymount School project, a new building for an independent all-girls school located on the Upper East Side in Manhattan that will employ sustainable features to be incorporated into the curriculum.

Pam regularly shares her knowledge of biophilic and sustainable design. She has spoken at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Marymount School and Columbia University, as well as at the AIA National Convention, and the USGBC NY, Green Buildings NY and IIDA conferences. She has been on the Urban Green Council’s member’s roundtable 80X50 Building’s Partnership and served as the Programs & Education Committee advisor. She has also served as a master’s thesis jury member for the Fashion Institute of Technology and a year end project reviewer for the Urban Assembly School of Design and Construction.

Prior to joining COOKFOX, Pam worked in the UK and Germany. With an education at both an art school and a technical university as well as experience in a broad range of project types, she has found COOKFOX to strongly support her belief in a holistic, collaborative approach to design, necessary for creatively addressing the most critical challenges and opportunities of today’s architecture.
