Dan Clevenger Earns 2017 Young Architect Award

Dan Clevenger, AIA, LEED AP, received the 2017 Young Architect Award by The American Institute of Architects Western Mountain Region (AIA WMR). The AIA WMR Young Architect Award recognizes individuals who show exceptional leadership in design, education, and service to the profession, and have been licensed for fewer than 10 years.

As an architect, Clevenger believes quality design is the direct result of close collaboration with clients and peers. His expertise has helped elevate the design for projects across Arizona, including Our Lady of the Angels Church at the Franciscan Renewal Center, renovations to the Grand Gallery at the Heard Museum in Phoenix, and the Barbara Antonsen Memorial Park Amphitheater in Sedona. Most recently, he served as project manager for the Franciscan Renewal Center’s master plan implementation in Scottsdale, Arizona, an effort that enriches the lives of parishioners and community members alike. Clevenger has also served as an educator in the Design School at Arizona State University, where has taught both undergraduate and graduate design studies in Architecture and Landscape Architecture.

“Dan is an invaluable asset to DLR Group,” said Senior Principal Paul Westlake, FAIA, FACHA. “He is a leader, both within our firm and in the broader profession, who believes in building relationships, and approaches every endeavor with an open mind and an innovative spirit.”

Clevenger was one of five Young Architect Award recipients honored during the Awards Gala at the AIA WMR Conference in Las Vegas on Saturday, Oct. 14.
