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.
Tell us about your role on the Membership Steering Committee:
Now more than ever, architects must act as a mirror for the needs of a changing American societal fabric. We have an opportunity to translate and respond to the most immediate issues related to equity and diversity in our communities, in our projects and our own office environments. As the Chair of the Membership Committee, I am excited about how AIA Seattle can demonstrate national leadership in this regard – and how we can use it as an opportunity to put our region’s architects in the best position for success. There are so many benefits to membership in AIA that extend beyond simply achieving Learning Units. By connecting with one another and understanding our differences and commonalities, we can extend our reach through education, training and elevating expectations for design, and for each of us as individuals, as architectural firms and members of our respective communities.
