Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo and Associates LLC (KRJDA), located just outside New Haven, Connecticut, is a direct outgrowth of Eero Saarinen and Associates, which was originally established in 1950. When Eero Saarinen died in September 1961, the practice was taken over by Kevin Roche and John Dinkeloo, with Kevin Roche resolving the remaining design issues of the twelve major projects on which Mr. Saarinen had been working at the time of his death. These included the Dulles International Airport, the St. Louis Gateway Arch, and the CBS Headquarters in New York. In 1966 the firm became Kevin Roche John Dinkeloo and Associates.
"Architecture is an achievement that comes from the commitment of the owner and the understanding of the architect that the work to be realized will be a response not only to the immediate requirements but also to the broader concerns of the community, the accommodation of the natural and cultural environment, and the belief that the final responsibility is not only to the user and the community, but ultimately to posterity.
