Rob Proctor

Principal / Vice President

A RATIO Principal with more than 25 years of experience in architecture, Rob provides planning and design leadership with the firm’s most complex higher education projects in support of active teaching and research. He is a strong advocate for smart and sustainable design strategies that work to capture the culture of an academic unit within its broader campus. His dedication to bringing enthusiasm and energy to faculty and staff has helped to elicit unique programmatic distinctions for their programs, whether constructing an all-new structure, or weaving complex additions and renovation work.

More specifically, Rob has pioneered RATIO’s LiveDesignSM Method, a project delivery approach that enhances and accelerates client communication through highly-participatory design workshops that develop greater consensus among stakeholders and designers working together as a team.

Rob’s recent experiences have also allowed him to engage with student-life and cultural museum projects. Rob seeks solutions that draw inspiration from the context and feel of a space to help tell the client’s story, resulting in timeless yet contemporary architecture that evokes a sense of purpose and permanence.
