David Hatton, AIA, NCARB, takes the helm of CannonDesign’s firmwide education practice. A recognized thought leader and speaker within the market, David takes over a well-respected and growing area within the firm.

“David’s perspective and approach will support the education team in further exploring what’s looming within the market,” says CEO Brad Lukanic, and the firm’s former education leader. “I’m excited to witness how he will further advance our collective education resources and the resulting design solutions.”

David comes to CannonDesign as a partner from VSBA LLC (Venturi Scott Brown Associates), where he specialized in higher education, healthcare and museums, while leading business development initiatives. He’s also held senior leadership roles at Stantec and Burt Hill.

“I’m intrigued and passionate about the educational evolution and our ability to create environments that enhance learning opportunities,” says David. “The convergence of technology, pedagogy and design is currently in an exciting transformational state. The concept of “learning is everywhere” allows CannonDesign to exploit our services not only in education, but also in healthcare, workplace and other institutional markets.”
