William Isley FAIA (BArch UW 1965, MCP UPenn 1967), a principal of Hewitt Isley 1975-1998, has worked with communities throughout the Pacific Northwest in developing integrated planning and design processes, effectively contributing to the region's quality of life. With training and credentials in both architecture and urban planning, Isley has brought these processes together in projects that range in scale from the 6,000-acre Cougar Mountain Master Plan to redevelopment of Seattle's central waterfront.
In the mid-1990s, Bill Isley influenced Washington State and the city of Seattle to include concentrated urban centers (with associated design policies) in their long-term growth management legislation.
The AIA College of Fellows inducted William Isley in 1996.
