For Kevin Wagner, good architecture is smart; it solves difficult problems with clever yet simple solutions while still upholding the physical beauty of space. Kevin enjoys working directly with each client, taking the time to understand each idea and then going above and beyond to design spaces that make the client feel heard and understood. One of Kevin’s primary goals is to foster strong communication throughout the entire design process in order to build relationships with, and ultimately design the most functional and graceful spaces for, owners and clients. He recognizes that some buildings he designs will last significantly longer than his lifetime, making him think deeply about each he creates. Kevin has managed several projects of varying scale for university, corporate, and residential clients. In 2017, Kevin was the recipient of AIA Iowa’s Young Architect Award due to his exceptional leadership and significant contributions to the profession of architecture. He continues to serve his community through leadership roles with various organizations including the AIA Iowa Board of Directors.
