For over 25 years, Levin has specialized in the design and construction of performing arts, museum, civic, and higher education facilities.

“Jordan believes in the importance of creating supportive environments that are designed to elevate the human experience. He perfectly embodies the talent we’re seeking to further grow our practice in California,” said DLR Group Senior Principal Paul Westlake, FAIA, IIDA, who leads DLR Group’s global Culture+Performing Arts Studio. “He adds a competitive edge to each project, especially given his layered experience and insight into the mind of a performer, as he fully understands how these spaces should be designed to better cater to the end user.”

“I’m thrilled to join DLR Group and plan to use my new role as an opportunity to discover innovative design solutions that further serve our growing communities,” said Levin. “We’re at a time in history in which humans have reached a tipping point in the stability of our global environment, and as designers we have the responsibility to steer the dialogue and design in a positive self-sustaining direction.”

Levin received a bachelor’s degree in architecture at the University of Maryland and a master’s degree in architecture at Yale University. He is an active participant in industry organizations, including the American Institute of Architects and the American Association of Museums.
