Cote. “Our clients face diverse and increasingly complex regulatory challenges, and it was important that the space reflects our Firm's energetic and collaborative culture that will help clients succeed in this challenging environment .”
The firm partnered with the Corcoran School to furnish the office with a collection of photographic images provided by the school’s students [Nosratallah Tarighi, Daniel Martinez Gonzalez, Zhongmou Sun, Joy Yi, Sana Ullah]. The artwork is an embodiment of the Washington, D.C. community, and will be a permanent fixture within the office space.
"Partnering with Quarles & Brady allows our students to use their visual reporting talents to bring the community and stories of Washington, D.C., into this beautifully designed space," said Susan Sterner, program head, New Media Photojournalism, Corcoran School of the Arts and Design at the George Washington University.
