Shannon E. Fowler, AIA
Shannon Fowler was born in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1967. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Rice University in 1989, double majoring in architecture and fine arts, followed by her Bachelor of Architecture in 1991 also from Rice University. Shannon is a registered architect in Georgia and is a member of NCARB. She began her career at the office of Mitchell/Giurgola in New York. Subsequently, she joined Jackson & Ryan Architects in 1992. In 1995, continuing to work for Jackson & Ryan, she moved to Georgia. She telecommutes daily, accessing the Houston office computer server to share files with co-workers. Shannon's years of successful telecommuting and leadership as project architect for Atlanta commissions have proven that valuable employees are no longer lost when they pursue plans that require relocation from Houston. Shannon previously taught computer-aided drafting at Houston Community College. Drawing on her background in the arts, she has painted murals for schools and for the Houston SPCA. As a parent of a child on the autism spectrum, Shannon has gained an understanding of how the built environment can be manipulated to improve the experience of individuals with sensory or processing challenges.
