This week, I am speaking with David Hacin who is the Founding Principal and Creative Director of Hacin + Associates, an interdisciplinary architecture design firm founded in Boston in 1993. They're currently a 30+person team dedicated to design excellence and client service. David has a plethora of recognition and awards for the studio's broad portfolio of architecture, interior design, graphics and branding.
David studied both at Princeton University and Harvard Graduate School of Design and has served on the Northeastern University School of Architecture Advisory Board and as a guest critic and lecturer at many design schools in the country.
He's also served nearly 20 years as the Mayoral appointee to the Boston Civic Design Commission and the City of Boston's Design Review Panel for public-significant works. In 2010, David was named a Fellow of the American Institute of Architects.
In this interview, we get to see some of the insights that David has accrued in his business experience, how he's cultivating culture, how he has never let go of a member of his staff or a member of his team, which was a testament to the deep culture that he has cultivated, and the human-centric philosophy that underpins much of the practice's work and culture.
