Ben Parker, AIA, WELL AP

Ben loves buildings, not for the value of the stone, the steel, or the glass that make them up, but because of their profound ability to transform our human lives. Through his experience in architecture, he understands that thoughtful building can also transform the earth, turning factories into neighborhoods and abandoned mines into ecological research centers.

Ben sees architecture as part of a larger creative endeavor involving writing, drawing, music, film, as well as even subtler creativities like cooking, exercise, or getting dressed. By drawing inspiration and logic from these intersections, buildings go from good to great.

The people at Overland are of unparalleled character, and working alongside them is the most rewarding part of Ben’s job. When he is not at work, Ben can be found spending time with his family, reading, or nurturing dreams for the future. He is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin.
