Alex Clinton

AIA, CDT, LEED AP BD+C
Associate Principal, Houston

After completing the arduous curriculum of architecture school, Alex thought he might shift gears and apply to a graduate program in computer animation in hopes of working in movie or video game design.

Fate intervened and a summer job drafting in AutoCAD exposed him to something his schooling had not: the tangible aspects of seeing his work come to life on a construction site. Since then, Alex has never looked back. His design philosophy aims to keep things simple and purposeful. He believes in finding the most streamlined solutions to creating functional spaces that cater to a building’s inhabitants.

“Intellect is only a small piece of the puzzle; intangibles such as attitude and work ethic are what really set you up for success.”
Work Hard, Play Hard!

Although it’s sometimes a tall order these days, especially as a parent of two rambunctious boys, Alex appreciates the age-old motto of “work hard, play hard.” He enjoys making a mean brisket and ribs, on the smoker—though he has yet to master the art of grilling fish.

Fun Fact
Alex is restoring, at a snail’s pace, a 1966 Mustang Convertible that he bought at the end of high school.
