Chris Parker, AIA, LEED AP BD+C

Associate | Architect

Chris Parker is a licensed architect arriving in the Emerald City (and directly to Board & Vellum) from Hawaii, via upstate New York. Over the course of that 11-year, 7,000-mile journey, he completed his Doctorate of Architecture, took his licensing exams, served as the Chair of the US Green Building Council Hawaii Chapter's Green Schools Committee, then served as Communications Chair for the AIA Southern New York Chapter, while lecturing at Cornell University's Design & Environmental Analysis program.

He is excited to be in the Pacific Northwest, and eager to work on projects of all scales here at Board & Vellum. In his spare time, he loves graphic design, urban exploring, cooking local Hawaiian and Filipino food, trying local microbrews, hiking, and skiing.
