Back to Our People

Patricia A. Bou, AIA, LEED AP

Co-Director, Education Practice


There is a small window in the life of an institution during which our team has the honor and privilege to make an impact. I love understanding our clients’ missions, goals and aspirations, and aligning them with our teams’ passions and strengths to deliver the best designs possible.

As Co-Director of CannonDesign’s Education Market, Patricia has worked with clients across all education typologies, from early master planning, to innovative academic design solutions. Her broad expertise in university architecture, strong commitment to integrated strategies and solid client relationships make her an invaluable partner with her clients. She is known as a thought leader for the firm through her previous role on the Board of Directors, and presently through speaking at numerous national conferences. She also serves as a senior ambassador in CannonDesign’s Women’s Forum. Patricia is not only a role model that women can aspire to become, but also someone that lifts others up so they can rise to their potential by challenging them to think as leaders themselves.
