Westlake Reed Leskosky’s Dan Clevenger, AIA, recently received American Institute of Architects (AIA) Arizona’s 2015 AIA10 Award. The Award recognizes his achievements as an architect and his exceptional leadership in community service, education, design, and service to the profession.

As an emerging design leader in the field, Dan exemplifies a passion for architecture and the willingness to share his thought-leadership, expertise, and time. Respected by colleagues and clients, Dan was recently promoted to Associate Principal of Westlake Reed Leskosky, a role in which he establishes himself as a design leader within the Phoenix studio and the firm as a whole.

Dan shares his energy and creativity mentoring intern architects within the practice and teaching undergraduate and graduate design studios in Architecture and Landscape Architecture for The Design School at the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University. He is also involved in professional design organizations at state and local levels: for AIA Arizona as Chair of AIA10, AIA Phoenix Metro Advisory Council, and AIA State Board of Directors; and in community service as a member of the board of directors for Artlink, Inc., a non-profit organization. These contributions underscore his commitment and dedication to the betterment of the profession and community and distinguish him as a strong leader in the firm and an engaged and inspired architect.

Dan’s most recent projects include the newly completed CREATE at Arizona Science Center, a space for open-ended “making,” combining science, technology and art; and on-going design work for the Franciscan Renewal Center,

including their new worship space. Through Dan’s leadership, both projects represent a design-driven, collaborative approach.

The AIA 10 Award is given by AIA Arizona to members within their first ten (10) years as a registered architect for exceptional leadership in community service, education, design, and/or service to the profession. Learn more about
