Christopher Palms – Meet a B&V'er – Board & Vellum

Christopher Palms, AIA, LEED AP

Associate | Architect

Christopher joins Board & Vellum with over 20 years of experience in architecture, spanning project types from historic preservation to affordable housing to – even – zoos.

Hailing from the suburbs of Detroit, from a family with a heavy leaning toward the building professions, Christopher has been designing, tinkering, and building things since childhood. His formal education includes a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from Yale, earned cum laude, followed up with a Master of Architecture cum laude from the University of Michigan.

Working in Seattle since 1999, Christopher is intimately familiar with the Seattle market, and has enjoyed his time working on great projects at a variety of firms over the years, including BOLA, PJA, Tonkin Hoyne Lokan, Environmental Works, and Schemata Workshop.

He also is devoted to traveling, exploring areas all over the world, always with camera at the ready. He finds that architecture, like photography, is universal across cultures, a way for people to come together, build community, and communicate even without a shared language.

Christopher is a member of the AIA, the AIA Seattle Disaster Preparedness Response Committee, Architects Without Borders, the Northwest EcoBuilding Guild, and the Housing Development Consortium.
