Donald R. Powell, AIA, NCARB

Growing up in a family of builders laid the foundation and by thirteen, Don Powell, Principal-in-Charge, was working commercial construction projects, already on his way to an architecture degree from Ball State University. He began his career in Indianapolis, and four decades ago launched the firm now known as BOKA Powell. A broad range of projects followed and, after planning and designing more than 35 million square feet of architecture and interiors, he maintains that the best design solutions come from a thorough understanding of the problem and allowing that clarity to drive the process. Don, like every other principal at BOKA Powell, stays involved in his projects from beginning to end and continues his professional education through Executive Graduate Courses at Harvard Graduate School of Design.
