David Rogers

Associate Principal, Atlanta

The son of a physicist, David grew up surrounded by science. As a child, he spent countless hours in the lab and exploring Georgia Tech’s campus (his father was a professor!), all while doodling in his sketchbook.

Intrigued by the intersection of art and science and passionate about history, David was drawn to architecture, a discipline where he could exercise his creativity while staying grounded in science and structure. David is passionate about using technology to drive design, collaborate with his peers, and communicate with clients by truly immersing himself in the spaces he creates.

David is drawn to adaptive reuse projects, as they provide opportunities to see and respond to rich layers of history. He enjoys a good puzzle and the excitement of discovery, all of which factor into his latest passion: restoring his 1919 historical home.
