James Vick

“It’s a gift to work with diverse groups of people to create road maps that tie together the distinctive social, political, and spatial dimensions that define their communities. These are journeys of hope, expectation, and achievement, and the outcomes can be transformative!” As an architect and planner with 30 years of experience in the Americas, Middle East, Europe, and Asia, James works with communities to shape their neighborhoods, districts, towns, and cities through collaborative planning and design strategies. His project experience focuses on civic places, mixed-use districts, new communities, parks, and open space systems.
