Dana Ing Crawford, AIA
University of Oregon,
Bachelor of Science in Architecture, 1992
Dana believes people are at the root of great architecture. Since a design solution should reflect its use and its users, she partners with clients in the early design phase by spending time in their world and seeing the project from their perspective. Working with the greater team, she fosters an environment where all participants – clients, designers, and contractors – generate ideas and solutions together.
Raised in Ashland, Oregon and graduating with a Bachelor of Architecture from the University of Oregon in 1992, she brings an understanding of the local community and over 20 years of experience in a variety of project types including civic architecture, higher education, and community centers. Through her work in public architecture came an appreciation for public involvement, which creates buildings that resonate with and are supported by their communities.
Dana managed the campus plan and Science and Academic building for the University of Washington, Bothell campus, the campus plan and Science Center for the University of Puget Sound, and the award-winning Hallie Ford Center and the School of Business for Oregon State University. Her previous experience managing Eugene’s Police and City Hall Master Plan provided an understanding of LEED certified Public Safety and Essential Facility projects, and how to effectively lead complex public involvement efforts.
Recent projects include the Southern Oregon Friends of Hospice Holmes Park House (a renovation and addition to a home designed by AIA Gold Medal winner Paul Revere Williams), Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s Master Plan, the City of Ashland’s City Hall Master Plan, and several Asante projects.
In addition to her professional skills, Dana is active in Ashland Schools and is an Architect-In-Residence through the Architect In Schools program.
