Leadership

Prior to forming Alliance Architects, the principals served in leadership roles with the two predecessor firms, James Childs Architects and Architecture Design Group (ADG). Together, the five enjoy nearly one hundred years of experience as principals in architectural practice.

Alliance is organized into four design studios, each of which focuses on a specific project type. The principals lead the studios and continue to manage projects on a day-to-day basis.
