Shannon helps students learn.

Shannon Dowling is an architect, space analyst, and educator who focuses on creating research-driven and student-centered learning environments. Equipped with an extensive knowledge of educational trends and challenges, Shannon always works with the physical and psychological needs of students in mind. She collaborates closely with educators, students, and administrators to create inspirational yet functional space in which every student feels comfortable, safe, and ready to succeed.  

Passionate about education, Shannon was an adjunct professor for VCU’s School of the Arts from 2008-2019 and she has taught architecture classes to children since 2012. She is involved with the Learning Spaces Collaboratory, a national think tank of architects, planners, and academics focused on studying best practices for learning spaces. She also recently completed a yearlong fellowship with the Society of College and University Planning (SCUP), in which she studied the role campus spaces can play in helping colleges and universities become more equitable and inclusive.   

Shannon is known across the firm for working collaboratively with others, across practice groups, disciplines, and offices. She is at her best when given opportunities to synthesize, strategize, collaborate, and create environments that inspire innovation in others.
