John Dwyer, AIA | Notes of Interest

John’s design work, civic responsibility, and advocacy roles show him to be an exemplary public servant and architect. He has recognized the importance of nurturing his own leadership skills and has become a strong advocate for the architecture profession.

John’s search to expand and articulate the value of what he does and of his profession has been a constant pursuit. His first attempt, the Clean Hub, gained momentum quickly and resulted in a fully mobile, secure, and rapidly deployable building that generated its own water, electricity, and sanitation. It was shipped to New Orleans, where it still serves as part of the city’s urban farming initiatives.

He has demonstrated a keen commitment to the profession, the discipline of architecture, and the social role of architecture, working closely with communities. This commitment has made his leadership qualities shine as he pursues both high design and construction values even in a challenging social context.
