Andrew Smith AIA

Principal, Historical Architect

“I view architecture as problem-solving through design. I’m always mindful that these are my clients’ projects, not my own. Architectural design should come from a place of creative solutions to complex problems, rather than from the desire to achieve a certain aesthetic.”

Andrew is a seasoned project manager and historical architect who brings 25 years of experience in the planning, design execution, and construction administration of civic and cultural, hospitality, mixed-use, and corporate projects — ranging from $2M to $80M in construction value. In addition to preserving and restoring historic resources, his passions include project management and its critical role in the success of projects. Andrew holds both bachelor and masters degrees from the Tulane University School of Architecture and leads our civic and cultural group. His expertise includes an understanding of historic rehabilitation techniques and practical application of the U.S. Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties, and he sits on the City of Portland’s Historic Landmarks Commission.
