Cooper Melton AIA
Cooper Melton has devoted his 20 years of design practice to housing and student life facilities. With his ability to conceptualize and implement design at all phases of the process, he has steered a number of successful and award-winning projects to completion. His design approach involves prioritizing occupant needs to create spaces that are functional and beautiful, while also reflecting an institution’s mission and values.
Cooper’s goal as an architect is to create transformative buildings. He finds it most rewarding to see the positive, community-building impact his work has on the lives of students. Some of his recent projects include the Alfond Commons at Colby College, the Gladding Residence Center at Virginia Commonwealth University, and the renovation of Fribley Commons at Case Western Reserve University.
