Rob Chandler, FAIA
Rob provides design leadership across a wide spectrum of Goody Clancy’s academic, civic and residential projects. His work for colleges and universities includes business schools, science and research facilities, student centers and residence halls. His portfolio includes both bold design statements and more subtle interventions that have had a transformative impact on their communities. Many of his projects are characterized by dramatic interior spaces that become defining places, shaping the identity of campus communities and fostering collaboration and interaction. This work includes the McDonough School of Business at Georgetown University, Rawls Hall at the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University, the College of Informatics in Griffin Hall at Northern Kentucky University, and several buildings for Emmanuel College in Boston.
His residential work features many national award-winning housing developments in Massachusetts, notably the internationally-acclaimed Tent City with its two hundred sixty-nine units of affordable housing in Boston. He is an author of Building Type Basics for Housing, a comprehensive guide to the planning and development of new housing, published by Wiley and now in its second edition. Rob was elevated to the AIA College of Fellows in 2015.
Rob’s current and recent projects include the Forbes Beeler Residence Hall at Carnegie Mellon University, the Chao Center at the Harvard Business School, a new academic building at the University of Louisville, and buildings for senior housing, offices and community organizations at the Roxbury Crossing transit hub in Boston.
