Isaac Campbell, AIA, NCARB
Isaac Campbell is a founding Principal of OFFICE 52. For over two decades, he has planned, programmed and designed innovative and highly sustainable environments for institutional, corporate and private clients in the United States and abroad. His design work ranges from small scale residential, infill and adaptive re-use projects to medium and large scale projects for education and research, the arts, commercial development, transportation as well as precinct and master plans. This work includes iconic buildings and places such as Stanford University’s new Science and Engineering Quad, a proposal for the New York Times Headquarters in New York, the Chubu Teiju Culture Center and Museum in Japan and the Jen-Hsun Huang Engineering Center at Stanford.
Much of Isaac’s design work has focused on creating transformational environments for educational institutions, encompassing over 20 projects on 13 different college and university campuses across the country. This includes an award-winning master plan for Stanford University’s new Science and Engineering Quad and designs for the first three buildings on that quad. Other projects include the new 9 building LEED Platinum Knight Management Center for Stanford’s Graduate School of Business as well as projects for Virginia Tech, the University of Texas at Austin, Northern Arizona University, and the University of Washington.
Through this work, Isaac has developed an interactive and collaborative approach that allows him to effectively lead integrated teams and successfully engage clients, project stakeholders and community leaders in the design process.
Isaac received his Bachelor of Arts in 1989 and his Bachelor of Architecture in 1991 from Rice University, where he briefly taught. He has lectured at the School of Engineering at Stanford and has presented his work at regional and national conferences. He has juried national design award programs and been a guest juror at numerous architecture programs including Yale, Penn State, Stanford, the University of Oregon and several abroad programs in Rome.

Prior to that, he was a Design Team Leader at Cesar Pelli &Associates (now Pelli Clarke, Pelli Architects) in New Haven, CT. where he worked for 10 years, leading major projects and competitions in the US and Asia.
