Hamilton Anderson Names New Design Principal


DETROIT — Hamilton Anderson Associates has named Dan Kinkead, AIA, design principal at its Detroit office. Kinkead’s appointment comes after taking on expanded leadership roles within HAA’s professional studio, and directing several complex projects, since his return to the firm in 2004. He has led the design of several architecture, urban design, and planning projects, including the recently completed Wells Hall Language Arts Building at Michigan State University, and major portions of Detroit Future City — a comprehensive strategic plan for Detroit, developed with national and international urban experts to guide investment within the city.

Kinkead’s appointment will keep him focused on design project leadership, staff development, and design studio direction, while contributing to strategic decision making within the firm’s broader leadership team, said Rainy Hamilton Jr., president of HAA. “Dan’s thoughtful design process, and his dedication and commitment to our practice, have been instrumental to its success,” Hamilton said. “We look forward to Dan’s continued growth,”

Kinkead received his master of architecture in urban design from Harvard University and his bachelor of architecture from the University of Kentucky.
