HOLLY KINCANNON, Assoc AIA
My design career has been informed by the elegant environments I have worked within. As beautiful as they are, historic properties often demand a high level of construction detailing, as well as sensitivity to the competing programmatic forces. They are settings with complex conditions, and have pushed me to study and adapt.
An inspiration that has also powered me throughout my career is the desire to bridge the worlds of traditional architecture, contemporary life and modern art. I simply prefer not to choose stylistically, but to make decisions that are grounded in a project’s moment, polemic and financials.
I’ve worked as a design lead and project manager on institutional buildings, but also as a committed studio artist. I am comfortable working as a team member, a purist when precision is required, and as a poet when my own voice is essential.
