Bill E. Roschen, FAIA, LEED AP BD+C

Bill Roschen's career manifests the new paradigm of "citizen architect" as civic leader who can engage communities in the thoughtful conversations required to advance infill and redevelopment projects that make neighborhoods sustainable, affordable, livable, and healthy. His appointment as President of the City of Los Angeles Planning Commission culminated three decades of practice. Bill opened a storefront office at the famous intersection of Hollywood and Vine in 1987 with his partner, Christi Van Cleve, and they immersed themselves in the community, serving on the boards of local arts, civic, and youth leadership organizations, while establishing a "place-based" urban architectural practice working on affordable housing, historic preservation and mixed-use transit-oriented development projects that are providing density, gravity and vitality to revivify Hollywood's once magnetic downtown.
...
It is work that has provided Bill with a critical skill set at a time when Los Angeles and the nation are turning away from suburbanization and privatization toward urbanism, collectivism and a renewed interest in and recognition of the value inherent in the public realm.
Bill holds a Masters degree in Architecture from Columbia University, with an emphasis on city planning and urban architecture, historic preservation and philosophy of aesthetics, and a Bachelor of Architecture from Arizona State University, with an emphasis on sustainable design. He trained in civic engagement leadership at CORO in Los Angeles. In 2013, Bill was honored for his eight years of city-changing leadership on the LA City Planning Commission with an AIA/LA Presidential Citation and with the American Planning Association Los Angeles and California Chapters' Distinguished Leadership Award for Citizen Planner of the Year.

William E. Roschen

President Los Angeles City Planning Commission
...
Bill Roschen's career manifests the new paradigm of "citizen architect" as civic leader who can engage communities in the sometimes difficult conversations required to advance infill and redevelopment projects that make neighborhoods sustainable, affordable and livable. His appointment as president of the City of Los Angeles Planning Commission culminates two decades of practice and occurs as a significant body of his work - more than 2.5 million square feet and 1,500 housing units - comes out of the ground near the famous intersection of Hollywood and Vine. Bill opened a storefront office there in 1989 and immersed himself in the community, serving on the boards of local arts and youth leadership organisations, and establishing a "place-based" urban architectural practice working on affordable housing, historic preservation and mixed-use transit-oriented development projects that are providing density, gravity and vitality to revivify Hollywood's once magnetic downtown. It is work that has provided Bill with a critical skill set at a time when Los Angeles and the nation are turning away from suburbanisation and privatisation and toward urbanism, collectivism and a renewed interest in and recognition of the value inherent in the public realm.
Bill studied architecture at Columbia University (Master's degree) with an emphasis on urban architecture, historic preservation and philosophy of aesthetics; at Arizona State University (Bachelor of Architecture) with an emphasis on sustainable design; at Penn State University with an emphasis on systems and structure; and he trained in civic engagement leadership at CORO in Los Angeles.
