Rob Walker

Rob founded Rob Walker Architects, LLC in 2001. While attending Tulane University, Rob’s passion for the urban context was established through each project. Further study in Venice, Italy strengthened his background with an understanding of the architectural heritage and urban life of Europe. Rob believes the architect’s role extends beyond the traditional services. He serves as a close advisor and partner to the clients for the entire process.
His knowledge and experience helping to sift through the labyrinth of regulatory, financial and management issues that every development project entails has yielded successful projects for his clients. Also, through his involvement with the American Institute of Architects, at local, state, and national levels, Rob keeps abreast of the current trends in the practice and design of architecture. Rob will be the principal architect for the project serving as the primary decision maker, offering his expertise and oversight throughout all phases of the project.
