Arup, a leading global sustainability and built environment consultancy, announced today that Jon Cicconi has joined the firm as Principal to lead its new US architecture practice based in New York.

Already having established a strong presence in Canada, Arup’s architecture practice will expand the firm’s service offerings in the US focusing on the rail, transit, and infrastructure markets, enhancing solutions for clients in sustainable design, diversifying the firm’s market portfolio and geographic offerings, and strengthening partnerships with other design collaborators.

Cicconi joins Arup from Skidmore Owings & Merrill where he was a New York Design Studio Leader. He has decades of experience working on award-winning projects, including Moynihan Train Hall in Manhattan and Denver Union Station. A native of South Jersey, Jon holds a Master of Architecture degree from Harvard University Graduate School of Design and a Bachelor of Science in Architecture from the University of Virginia.

Globally, Arup has deep expertise in architecture, delivering projects like the Cityringen Metro in Copenhagen, the HS2 Interchange Station in Solihull, UK, the Admiralty Station in Hong Kong, and the Metrolinx Finch West Light Rail Transit, a new 18-stop line now under construction in Northwest Toronto.

I am honored to join Arup and further establish Arup’s incredible architecture and design capabilities in the US market. I believe interdisciplinary design has the potential to make architecture more powerful, impactful, and sustainable. Arup’s unparalleled capabilities in sustainable development, engineering, and strategy offer an incredible value proposition to create truly holistic, unique, and enduring work. I am excited to join this team and support Arup’s ongoing contributions to creating sustainable futures around the nation.
