Milton Powell AIA

Associate Principal / Architect


Milton Powell believes that a building’s design should be simultaneously responsive to its program, its site, its budget and its future occupants. Beyond such fundamentals, Milton begins each project by seeking to determine its essence and then develops a design that reflects those unique qualities. His approach involves getting to know the client and exploring their desires, then examining potential solutions before offering a creative, cost-effective design. With every project, Milton aims higher than mere accommodation of basic function. He aspires to enhance the human spirit through architecture.

Published widely, Milton’s work has been recognized with numerous design awards from the American Institute of Architects, the National Endowment for the Arts, the American Association of School Administrators, the Council of Educational Facility Planners International and various trade groups. Milton’s extensive experiences, coupled with a strong sense of humor, make him a wonderful storyteller about the evolution of architecture and client expectations.
