Since our founding in 1964, Dattner Architects has chosen to focus on architecture for our communal civic life. Through our design of transit stations, schools, housing, parks, recreation facilities, and police and fire stations, our work has enriched the ever-growing urban fabric with distinctive, innovative, and inspiring buildings—positively impacting countless residents.

The core of our practice covers a broad range of typologies, located in diverse urban areas, from central-city neighborhoods to the growing outer communities, that are vital to the development of each city. Dattner Architects’ projects reflect the forces that have shaped the life of each community and influenced the design of urban spaces and buildings. Over time, our work has grown in scale and complexity, but our role in all of our projects has stayed remarkably consistent. We are not only architects, but steadfast advocates, facilitators of the complex exchanges between communities, professionals, and government officials required to realize these projects.
