FAIA, LEED AP, Architectural Design
Principal and leading practitioner of sustainable design, Bob Shemwell is inspired by problem-seeking, problem-solving, and innovation that span scales and geographic boundaries—from a house in Mexico City to an 85-square-kilometer urban design project in China. He examines the complexity of circumstances and relates them to their broader context, drawing from a diverse knowledge base that includes philosophy, history, economics, and architecture. For him, it is equally critical to learn from classical thinkers like Demosthenes or Heraclitus to understand the way the world works, how people interact, and how these elements come together to create the human condition.
Bob believes the key to success is to “fail well, learn quickly” and attributes many of Overland’s achievements to this idea. Fostering a creative culture where “failure” is accepted and embraced creates the opportunity for people to experiment and innovate within a protected environment—to push the envelope, challenge themselves, and try new things.
In his spare time, Bob is always on the search for the latest cutting-edge technology to better communicate his ideas and streamline the creative process.
