I Am AIA:
Rob Misel AIAExpand
I’ve been with The Miller Hull Partnership since 2002 and was invited to be a Partner in 2016. My career has tended toward the management and practice side of architecture, and at Miller Hull, I lead our Delivery group which focuses on issues related to quality, technology, expectations for delivery, and improving the understanding of our architectural staff in each of those areas. I am also a leader in Miller Hull’s SERVE marketing group, a team which focuses on projects related to infrastructure, U.S. gateways and public safety. My recent projects have included border crossings, embassies and other civic/public works.
Why did you join AIA Seattle?
I’m interested in developing a deeper relationship with my architectural peers in the Seattle area, and I believe AIA Seattle should continue to further issues related to equity, diversity and inclusion.
What project are you working on now?
I’m working on a 3-phase border crossing project for the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) located at the end of I-5 between San Diego, CA and Tijuana, Mexico where almost 100,000 people cross into the U.S. every day. Our role was to assist GSA in redefining approaches to design and program issues related to safety, technology and efficiency – in what can often be a difficult environment for people. I love how architecture can be a means to solve those challenging issues in a equitable, humane and sustainable way.
