David Dixon







David Dixon FAIA leads Stantec’s Urban Places Group, an interdisciplinary practice that helps communities manage the challenges presented by accelerating changes in demographics, real estate markets, climate and similar forces. In Urban Design for an Urban Century: Shaping more livable, equitable, and resilient cities, which he coauthored with Lance J. Brown FAIA (Wiley, 2014), David argues that these changes offer unprecedented opportunities for cities and suburbs alike to create social, economic, and environmental value. A Fellow of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), David was honored with the AIA's Thomas Jefferson Award for Public Architecture for “a lifetime of … significant achievement in [creating]… livable neighborhoods, vibrant civic spaces, and vital downtowns ...”  His work has won national awards from the AIA, American Planning Association (APA), Congress for the New Urbanism, International Downtown Association, Society for College and University Planning, and American Society of Landscape Architects. In 2007 Residential Architecture Magazine named David as the recipient of their 2012 Hall of Fame award “as the person we call when we have a question about cities.”
