Dave Allen, RA
Dave is an architect who sees beauty in the technical, practical aspects of design. Developing a good building detail for roofing or walls is the craftmanship by which the beauty of a building is expressed. The technical and artistic go hand-in-hand. It’s akin to his downhill skiing, really. A good set of skis on the feet of a skilled athlete makes for beautiful runs down the hills. A good building detail from the hands of skilled designer makes for a beautiful building.
Outside of 292, Dave spends a lot of time downhill skiing with his family and donates regularly to blood drives. His altruistic side is evident to colleagues at 292; he always gives the biggest piece of birthday cake to the person sitting next to him.
