David Black AIA


David Black is an award-winning architect whose skill lies not only in small precise details, but also in understanding and working within a larger context. His contributions to college campuses across the country exemplify his talent for creating buildings that pay homage to the history and tradition of the institution, while providing spaces for cutting-edge research and scholarship. Responding thoughtfully to the natural landscape, his designs allow the buildings and their users to interact harmoniously with the environment.


Every academic building exists in a specific context. Social, cultural, and physical. With each new project it's my responsibility to carefully consider the environment, history, and culture of the campus in the final design. The building is not about us architects. It's about realizing the client's vision and creating a sense of place.
