Ken Stockdell, AIA, LEED BD+C
Vice President, Convention Center Group Practice Leader

“The human interaction that happens at a convention and other events is what’s important – it’s the reason people gather. Our work as designers is to create the places where these events happen in a way that encourages and enriches that experience.”


About Ken

A native of Louisville, Ky., Ken lived in North Dakota, Oklahoma and Tennessee before settling in Atlanta. His path toward architecture began with an eighth-grade English assignment. “I had procrastinated starting a book report on a biography, and when I looked for the shortest one in the library, it was on Frank Lloyd Wright. The description of what architects do fascinated me, and I decided then that I wanted to be one. The main thing that attracted me was the opportunity to build things that made people’s lives, and the places they live and work, better.” Ken’s 31-year career focused on programming, planning and designing convention centers has helped transform both the economic and physical environment of communities across the United States and internationally.
