David P. Manfredi

FAIA, LEED AP

CEO and Founding Principal

David Manfredi works with clients across the country on a diverse portfolio of planning and design projects. Deeply committed to the belief that the quality of our environment directly influences the quality of our lives, he effectively advocates for building and protecting vital, sustainable, durable urban places. At every scale, in every context, David’s mission is to create common ground that brings people and communities together. He reinvents tired urban precincts into 21st-century mixed-use environments, the edges of universities from barriers into connective seams with adjacent neighborhoods, underutilized urban areas into diverse innovation districts that support the collaborative imperatives of today’s science and technology, and obsolete manufacturing buildings into repurposed hubs of living and working that reinvigorate the urban core. From The Grove in Los Angeles, to Boston’s revitalized Fenway neighborhood, to New Balance’s health and performance district at Boston Landing, and The Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, David’s projects are inventive, inclusive and sustainable. A compelling, sought-after speaker and thought-leader and one of Boston Magazine’s Most Influential People in 2018, David presents to business, civic, and professional organizations throughout the country about the value that mindful design brings to the quality of everyday life.

David is a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects and an active member of the Boston Preservation Alliance, International Council of Shopping Centers, NAIOP, and Urban Land Institute (ULI). He serves on the Boston Civic Design Commission, Northeastern University School of Architecture Advisory Council, the University of Notre Dame School of Architecture Advisory Council, and the ULI Boston Advisory Board. David is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame with Bachelor degrees in both English and Architecture, and the University of Chicago, where he received a Master of Arts.

It has been my distinct honor to have worked closely with David Manfredi in guiding the University of Florida through its campus master planning efforts for the past two years. David is a breath of fresh air in what is often referred to as “the swamp!” He is the consummate mix — an artist, a soothsayer, an intellect, a sage, and a realist. In short, he has enabled us to rethink how we envision our campus, focusing our thoughts not only on the potential of the physical environment, but on the ways in which we deliver world-class education and research in the next half-century. That’s what a visionary does.”

Elizabeth O. Lowrey

FIIDA, RDI

Principal

Elizabeth Lowrey is a designer, industry leader, and mentor. A principal of Elkus Manfredi Architects, she has been responsible for Elkus Manfredi’s interior architecture practice since the firm’s founding. In addition, her role in mentoring the next generation of industry professionals, active involvement with charitable organizations, and participation in national review panels has garnered Elizabeth respect and recognition from colleagues and peers.

Elizabeth’s projects range from corporate, hospitality, and retail/entertainment, to residential, life science, and higher education environments with clients ranging from Walt Disney Imagineering, Publicis Groupe, Texas Medical Center, and Boston Consulting Group, to the University of Michigan, New Balance, and Harvard University.

Interior Design magazine included Elizabeth on a list of “20 Inspiring Women who Make Up the New Face of the Design Industry.” For the fifth consecutive year, Boston Magazine named Elizabeth among the 100 Most Influential Bostonians, writing, “…as companies reimagine workspaces, there is perhaps no one more sought after. Sophisticated, savvy, and creative, her approach will no doubt shape the look of our city in the future.” Boutique Design magazine named Elizabeth a “maverick” and “silo buster” for her industry-crossing approach to design diversity, and she is widely recognized as a pioneer for her approach to workplace strategy and design, creating office environments that enhance organizational performance and strengthen firm culture. Since the pandemic changed the way we work, Elizabeth has partnered closely with companies in a wide variety of industries to evaluate their existing workplaces and re-invent them for the hybrid world of remote/onsite working.

Elizabeth delivered the 2019 Commencement Address at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and is a frequent speaker at design and architecture forums. She has been a guest columnist for Fast Company, Commercial Observer, Work Design Magazine, and Banker & Tradesman, and has been featured in numerous publications including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Metropolis.

In recognition of her industry leadership and her contributions to the real estate industry, Elizabeth was inducted into the College of Fellows by the International Interior Design Association, awarded the CoreNet Service Provider Leadership Award, the Suzanne King Public Service Award from CREW Boston, and the Real Estate Finance Association’s (REFA) Annual Distinguished Service Award. She was also selected for the U.S. General Services Administration’s National Registry of Peer Professionals to providing guidance for the GSA’s Design Excellence, Construction Excellence, and Art in Architecture programs.

Elizabeth currently serves on the foundation Board of Directors of Massachusetts College of Art and Design and is a member of the Board for Heading Home and Boston’s REFA. She previously served on Auburn University’s Interior Architecture Advisory Council and the Design Museum Foundation.

Elizabeth holds a Bachelor of Interior Architecture from Auburn University and an Honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts from Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

 

It was clear to me from the beginning of our project redesigning Draper’s headquarters that Elizabeth and I would form a very deep connection because of our shared interest in professionalism and integrity. Whenever we went over to Elkus Manfredi’s offices she was completely prepared. She even anticipated our needs to the point that she’d be halfway to a solution by the time we arrived. With Elizabeth, there are no excuses or unnecessary delays. We came in on time and under budget with the best use of flexible, collaborative space in Boston, if not the East Coast.”

Principal

John H. Martin is an architect, industry leader and mentor. His involvement with the design direction and intent on projects, his shared stewardship of the firm and his role in mentoring the next generation of industry professionals has garnered John respect and recognition from colleagues and peers.

As a Principal at Elkus Manfredi Architects, John works at the forefront of design for science & technology and higher education projects across the country. Focused on high performance and sustainable design, his work is informed by a combination of technical precision, appreciation of context, and broad understanding of real estate issues. He emphasizes a holistic approach that synthesizes his training in both architecture and engineering.

A member of the American Institute of Architects’ College of Fellows, John was an early adopter of LEED and sustainable building practices and is recognized for advancing the profession towards user-focused, environmentally responsible and socially just architecture.

John builds and facilitates strong design teams with experience, rigor, and approachability, and is committed to the idea that good planning and design can drive innovation and break down barriers to achieve inclusive environments.

John volunteers his time with industry organizations which focus on real estate and civic and community issues. In addition to being recently elected to the position of Treasurer, John was invited to participate in the Boston Society for Architecture’s task force to address, recommend and help institute DE&I industry initiatives. He is an active member of the Society for College and University Planning, NAIOP, and the Urban Land Institute’s Housing & Economic Development Council. Involvement with the Newtonville Historic District Commission and North Carolina State University’s College of Design Leadership Council aligns John’s career interests with his local community and with his alma mater.

John is a guest columnist for Fast Company, CoreNet’s The Leader, Banker & Tradesman and University World News. He is often invited to moderate and speak at industry conferences on master planning, sustainable building, interdisciplinary scientific research, and public-private partnerships for higher education institutions.  John received a Bachelor of Environmental Design in Architecture and a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from North Carolina State University, and a Master of Architecture from Harvard University Graduate School of Design.

John is unique among architects in that he combines excellent technical design knowledge and skills, but also an appreciation of the economic goals we as developers have for our projects. With this broad perspective, John is one of the best I have seen at helping deliver the highest quality and most efficient design within the budget parameters we establish. He never shies from a challenge and is never satisfied until he helps our team find the optimum design-development solution. Besides that, he is an absolute pleasure to work with!”

Emily Paparella

AIA, LEED APCPHC

Principal

Energized by the challenge of design, Emily Paparella joined Elkus Manfredi Architects in 2006 and was named a principal of the firm in 2023. An architect, planner, and project manager of exceptional talent, Emily is equally skilled in both planning and architecture, which allows her to bring an especially broad perspective and a wide range of creativity to every project. 

Emily’s work has included the master planning of projects in Baltimore, Detroit, Boston, and Cambridge, including MIT’s Kendall Square Initiative Masterplan. A strong leader accomplished in managing complex projects with multiple stakeholders, she has led the planning and design of numerous mixed-use life science, residential, higher education, and renovation projects, most recently Simmons University’s One Campus master plan and design of the Living and Learning Center, Lantera Residences at Boston Landing, and renovations to Harvard University’s famed Peabody Terrace and Soldiers Field Park. 

Emily has been a Certified Passive House Consultant since 2019 and is a passionate advocate for advancing architecture in response to climate change. She is sought after by project managers across the firm for her in-depth expertise in energy-saving technology, envelope performance, and energy-code compliance. Devoted to her clients and teams, she is dedicated to mentorship, always making time for mentees and colleagues. 

Beyond the firm, Emily is committed to supporting women in the commercial real estate industry and puts that commitment into action in all her professional work. In 2017, she co-founded the CREW Boston Development Project Management Group, a networking group targeted at women professionals specifically involved in the design and construction of projects. Also in 2017, Emily co-founded the Boston Society for Architecture Mid-Career Mentorship Program to serve mid-career women, who often lack the mentorship opportunities that emerging professionals have. She remains active in these groups and also serves on the Board of AIA Massachusetts. Emily received her Bachelor of Architecture degree from the University of Florida in 2004 and her Master of Architecture from MIT in 2007. 

Emily makes working through challenging times an absolute pleasure. She has really stood out as an exceptional female leader in our industry. Her professionalism, flexibility, and adaptability as the needs change, her creative problem-solving, and her expertise in management and architecture make her stand out amongst her peers.”

Howard F. Elkus

FAIA, RIBA, LEED AP

Founding Principal

(1938 – 2017)

An internationally acclaimed architect and urban designer, Howard Elkus led the design of game-changing developments and destinations over his career, which spanned more than 50 years. His commitment to designing urban places that create community – he termed these “people places” – was unequaled, as was his dedication to revitalizing cities with a dynamic and authentic blend of old and new. A friend and mentor to many in the architectural community and beyond, Howard brought a sense of joy and rigor to all his work, an infectious exuberance and standard of excellence that inspired each project, each client, and each team he led.

Since co-founding Elkus Manfredi Architects in 1988, and previously as a principal of The Architects Collaborative, Howard’s visionary work consistently broke new ground. As a pioneer of placemaking and sustainable design, he was a transformational figure not only in his adopted city of Boston, where his influence can be seen throughout the built environment, but also in cities and neighborhoods across the country and the globe.

His projects have included the design and planning for the million-square-foot Shops and Restaurants at Hudson Yards; master planning and design for Union Point, the comprehensive “Smart City” south of Boston; master planning and architectural design for Miami Worldcenter, a 27-acre downtown redevelopment that brings the heart of Miami into the 21st century; the Las Vegas City Hall, a signature design that pays homage to the past, present, and future of the city; two 47-story glass residential towers on the Hudson River in Fort Lee, New Jersey; Copley Place in Boston, the flagship prototype for mixed-use urban centers that Howard planned and designed 30 years ago.

Other large-scale mixed-use destinations are equally legendary — The Shops at Columbus Circle at the Time Warner Center in New York City and the world-famous paradigm of new urbanism, CityPlace in West Palm Beach. In addition, Howard created the next generation of transformational mixed-use destinations with the remaking of Boston’s iconic Faneuil Hall Marketplace. His work also included master plans and building designs for major higher education institutions including Harvard, Stanford, and Boston University.

Internationally, Howard led design teams for major mixed-use projects including The Galleria and Al Maryah Central in Abu Dhabi; and major mixed-use planning and design projects in Toronto, Istanbul, and Mexico City.

Howard received a Master of Architecture with Distinction from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design and a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering from Stanford University. He was a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, having been the lead designer of the AIA Headquarters in Washington, D.C.; a member of the Royal Institute of British Architects and the Boston Society of Architects; and a LEED Accredited Professional.

Howard was an active member of the Urban Land Institute and the International Council of Shopping Centers; and served on the Board of Trustees of the Boston Architectural College, the National Advisory Board of Old North Foundation, Artists for Humanity, and the International Board of Advisors of HealthBridge Foundation.
