David Curran has always loved solving problems. He’s fascinated with design for this reason – it offers solutions. He also loves working with his hands: building and making things. So for him, architecture is the magical intersection of these two worlds.

David earned his bachelor and master degrees in architecture at Washington State University. After graduation, he began working at SHKS Architects in Seattle, where he gained a wealth of experience working on institutional projects such as libraries and buildings on the University of Washington campus.

After nine years, David decided he was ready for new challenges and wanted to work on larger projects, so he came to Weber Thompson. He is currently working on a highly sustainable commercial office project in Fremont, and is helping multiple project teams integrate new modeling technology into their workflows including BIM and other tools that will create more efficient and streamlined processes.

After work, David spends time with his wife and toddler daughter, often splashing around with her in the mud in the backyard. He doesn’t mind getting dirty – one of his other favorite hobbies is downhill mountain biking – which he does on the weekends in Issaquah or up in British Columbia at Whistler when he wants to roll down bigger hills. He also makes time to tinker; he built the cabinets, bathroom, and did all the finish carpentry work on his Phinney Ridge home.
