Named the 2011 AIA Seattle Young Architect, Associate Myer Harrell is known throughout Seattle as a thoughtful, dedicated architect with a passion for sustainable design. His current work as a Project Architect at Weber Thompson is primarily in urban mid-rise, mixed-use, multifamily projects with ambitious environmental goals.
Throughout his design process, Myer strives to balance vision and action with creative and integrative problem solving solutions. He was a member of the award-winning design team for Eco-Laboratory, which won the national Green Build 2008 Natural Talent Design Competition, and was included in the Cooper Hewitt’s Design Triennial Exhibit.
Myer’s passion for both theory and practice keeps him heavily involved in the academia of architecture. Nationally, he has been actively engaged with the US Green Building Council as a member of the Education Events Committee and is a regular volunteer with Historic Green, a grassroots rebuilding effort in New Orleans. In recent years he has co-instructed architecture studios at the University of Washington’s College of Built Environments, and was elected to the Board of the Cascadia Green Building Council. Keeping his inspirations active, when he’s not training for a marathon he can be found on the soccer field or tapping along as he plays his bass in his band The Glasses.
