Following Syracuse University, John Kohlhas’ career led him to the presidency of GBQC Architects, where he planned, designed, and managed projects ranging from modest renovations to multi-building campuses, while enjoying the collegial environment of a nationally recognized design firm. In 2006, Kohlhas merged GBQC with Cubellis, taking the helm of that firm’s academic practice nationally and helping to develop the interdisciplinary design team in Philadelphia, now Environetics. Kohlhas’ work is wide-ranging, including academic buildings for individual schools within a university, general classrooms, science and research, libraries, sports and recreation facilities, conference centers, and campus plans. Kohlhas specializes in large-group collaborative planning, the topic of his workshop at the 2009 International Conference of SCUP, where he is now a member of the Mid-Atlantic Council. An adjunct professor of architecture at Philadelphia University, Kohlhas works to establish a spirit of life-long learning in the studio at Environetics.
