Whether working with clients or mentoring young architects, David Polzin is an educator at heart, helping people see the world in new ways and expand their creative vision. Drawing upon the realms of art, architecture, history, and culture, he exposes clients to exciting new spatial ideas that express their deep needs and communal identity in the built environment. Polzin’s designs have received AIA awards in every major market sector in which CannonDesign practices and is published globally in leading architecture publications including Architectural Record, Architect, and Azure. David is also a member of CannonDesign’s Board of Directors.

For me, the creation of every architectural solution is a unique experience of collaboration and exploration. My design process catalyzes the intangible ideas embedded in the aspirations, vision and identity of a client’s organizations and transforms them into tangible built expression. Each solution is the result of the contributions of those people that come together to dream of a building with a soul.
