David Sargent

Senior Principal | Architect & Town Planner

David has practiced architecture and urban design for almost 40 years, for the past 25 focusing exclusively on planning and design for pedestrian-oriented and transit-oriented neighborhoods, districts, corridors, towns and cities. He has assembled and directed multidisciplinary teams for public and private clients and projects throughout the country, directing plans ranging in size from multi-block urban infill projects to multi-neighborhood and town/city-wide master plans and general plans, and ranging in scale and character from rural landscapes and small towns to major metropolitan districts and corridors.

David was an original member of the Congress for the New Urbanism in 1993, an effective advocate for pedestrian- and transit-oriented development and smart growth in California long before those gained broad popularity and support from State law, and the principal author of the first several form-based codes adopted by California municipalities between 1993 and 2003. His work has been recognized by numerous local, state, national and international awards. He is the company's president and senior principal, always accessible to our clients, and personally engaged in the planning and design of every project we undertake.
