David focuses on large-scale planning and urban design projects for the firm.  He has been involved in hundreds of projects over the past thirty years, encompassing all scales of development from individual buildings to multi-thousand acre projects across the globe.  His work focuses on issues of broadly sustainable development, particularly the creation of resilient and sustainable health and research districts in urban areas and the design and metrics that facilitate the success of these districts.  He further addresses the regulatory framework within which this development occurs and provides innovative strategies for appropriate design and policy implementation.

David received the AIA (American Institute of Architects) Atlanta Silver Medal in 2003 and the AIA Georgia Bronze Medal in 2008. David was a member of Georgia Tech College of Architecture Faculty from 1992-2013; appointed Professor of the Practice of Architecture, where he taught studios focused on research both at the building level and as urban design studios, and seminars focused on sustainable regulatory policies.  He is currently located in the New York offices of Perkins+Will, leading planning efforts globally for the Urban Design practice and he is the current CEO of AREA Research, the non-profit research arm of the company.  He lectures and publishes widely on issues of urban design, planning and architecture, particularly in regards to sustainable and resilient cities.
