David Driskill, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, NCARB

Urban Designer

“Making the world a better place means sustainability to me. Social, economic, cultural and environmental sustainability.”

David is passionate about community and urban design. As the son of a county judge his childhood was spent going door-to-door with his dad during campaign-times giving him a lifelong interest in building community.

David practiced architecture and urban design in Washington D.C and Houston, TX before accepting a teaching position at Texas Tech University, where he eventually became the Director of Urban Tech, the College of Architecture’s downtown studio. Urban Tech engages with the City of Lubbock to envision a transformed and viable downtown Lubbock. David has continued to practice while teaching, working on projects including the Buddy Holly Center, the Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts and the High Cotton facilities for the homeless. David joined FBT Architects in 2013 to continue his contributions and commitment to urban design in a greater context.
