Ross Parker

Associate Principal, Seattle Studio Lead

Ross is a senior architect and learning environment planner with more than 30 years of experience, the past 20 years specializing in educational architecture. He is highly experienced in all phases of projects, from visioning through to final completion; and in a wide variety of project sizes, including new construction, renovation, historic preservation and reuse, and STEM focused schools.

A seasoned advocate for K-12 education, he has seen two of his projects recognized by the CEFPI (now A4LE) James D. MacConnell Awards committee. Ross is passionate about using design to connect students to their learning and natural environment and is a strong proponent of inclusive and culturally relevant community engagement for schools. His volunteer efforts include “working the phones” in support of school districts’ capital bond measures, local food banks and community non-profits, and speaking engagements at educational design conferences.
