Heath Henderson, AIA

Heath grew up spending time in his dad’s cabinet shop and inventing games and throwing footballs. After amateuring in various ball sports, he learned diligence by taking up distance running. He went on to discover a creative outlet for that diligence in architecture while earning degrees from Rhodes College and Washington University in St. Louis.

Working for a noble cause, with friends, has always been Heath’s dream. Previous architectural causes have included the Headwaters School and Crux Climbing Gym in Austin (while working for Derrington Building Studio), and the Seaholm Intake Building in downtown Austin (with Gumbully). Motivated by the belief that architects can be excellent public servants, Heath has served on various design committees.

A native of Memphis, Heath fancies himself barbeque-literate, and his opinions on Texas, Memphis, and Kansas City styles are readily available. He has visited 45 U.S. states and spent a summer backpacking in Europe, where he slept in the public spaces of the old world without asking permission. He always has a furniture-scaled project on the back-burner and is an embarrassingly proficient third baseman in kickball.
