|At 78-years-young, Steffian Bradley Architects is one of the more ?mature? architecture and design firms around, but it has its sights trained on today's hot markets. With about 10% of its work in China and a stateside emphasis on health care and education, the approximately 100-person staff is hopping.|
|We snapped Don Deng and Ruifeng Tian looking over the model of Park 1872, a 4M-SF mixed use project going up in Beijing. Once complete, its 11 towers will be filled with offices and luxury housing, including condos with hotel-type services now popular with China?s road warriors.

|Boston Children's Hospital is exporting its brand to Peabody where Teresa Wilson, Richard Lovell Berry, Craig DiCarlo,and Sal Davola designed an outpatient health center now under construction, expected to open early next year. They?ve renovated an existing commercial building, adding a two-story entry and lobby.
