Founding PartnerEmail. firstname.lastname@example.org
A founding partner of VMDO and a nationally-recognized leader in the design of educational environments, Bob is a passionate believer in the ability of design to affect behavior in positive ways. He upholds that designers have a critical role to play in developing healthier lifestyles, particularly among our nation’s youth. Over his four decades of practice, Bob has developed innovative instructional environments for dozens of school districts, significantly enriching the spaces where children learn and where educators teach. As of January 2020, Bob strategically supports VMDO's public K12 projects as an education design consultant, a transition which allows him to enjoy more time for the things he loves: yoga, golf, his growing family, and the pursuit of joy.
Bob's allegiance to his clients and their communities – doing whatever he can to uplift them and support their betterment through transformation – has defined his career and the ethos of service at VMDO. In Bob's words: "I've been fortunate to be a leader in VMDO, but it's not me. It's the work that everybody has done. And I think part of providing the highest professional standards is taking our clients and not treating them as clients, but treating them as the most precious thing that we have. How do we help them, with our skills, achieve their dreams?"
Part of Bob's commitment to educational facility design stems from his own intellectual curiosity and desire to learn. Over his career, Bob has built an extensive network of experts in a variety of fields and continually partners with diverse organizations to expand and share best practices in educational planning and design. Bob serves on numerous boards, including the Green Schools National Networks' Board of Directors. Among many other honors, Bob is the recipient of the 2019 Noland Medal – the highest award bestowed by AIA Virginia to an architect.
