Matt Ducharme

Principal, Design Leader West Coast

With degrees in structural engineering as well as architecture, Matt Ducharme bases his design thinking on a multi-disciplinary perspective.  His diverse portfolio reflects a range of scale and building typologies with an emphasis on experience, specificity of context, and technology.  He has led award-winning projects in the U.S. and Australia that include civic, mixed-use, high-rise towers, next generation performing arts, workplace, sports, and master planning.

Matt’s most prominent work includes 447 Collins Street (The Arch), Australia’s first true mixed-use tower. As Project Director he oversaw the global team responsible for creating this dramatic civic gesture for the people of Melbourne.  Matt also served as Senior Designer for 111 West 57th Street in New York.  At 1,400 feet, this landmark tower will be the slenderest skyscraper in the world with a 1:24 slenderness ratio.  Most recently, Matt lead the design of the MSG Sphere in Las Vegas; a next generation performing arts and entertainment venue that will redefine the future of concerts and entertainment.  He received his Master of Architecture from the University of Michigan and his Bachelor of Science in structural engineering from the University of Wisconsin.
