E.J. Meade, AIA • Principal | Architect
E.J. practices with the aspiration that buildings can inform us about place and landscape. Believing that the best architecture is a response to site and time, he draws from experience that includes studying philosophy and American Studies at Colby College, a Master of Architecture from the University of Colorado, and years of building experience.
After graduating from Colby, E.J. worked in carpentry in New England, learning traditional building methods and finish carpentry. Inspired by a summer studio at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design, E.J. studied architecture at the University of Washington in Seattle, and earned his Masters from the University of Colorado in 1991. He was the recipient of the Alpha Ro Chi Medal for Design Excellence and the Emerging Impressions Award from the AIA.
As part of his practice, E.J. was a senior instructor at the College of Architecture and Planning at the University of Colorado from 1993-2005. He is still involved in the academic community, regularly participating as an invited design critic at the University of Colorado and other universities around the country. E.J. has presented the work of Arch11 at several universities and lectured at the Denver Art Museum. His work is published in a variety of academic and professional journals.
E.J. Meade is a registered architect in the State of Colorado and an active member of the American Institute of Architects and the Boulder Green Building Guild.
