2016 - Richard (Dick) Winston is Principal of BWA architecture + planning, an award-winning design firm that focuses on education, housing, and institutional projects. “To the extent we can,” he says, “we mix not-for-profit work with for profit work. Making not-for-profit projects part of the project mix is a core value of the firm.”
“Community design was always part of my belief system,” Dick says. His involvement began when he was 19, when he volunteered with The People’s Workshop in New Brunswick, NJ while he was an undergraduate at Princeton University.
BWA has volunteered on a long list of projects through the Collaborative. Dick says that volunteering with the Collaborative has “exposed the staff to our office philosophy in a more palpable way than just words.”
