Michael Mistriner

AIA National Higher Education Practice Leader | Senior Vice President

With a career spanning more than 30 years, Mike is engaged in the firm’s business development efforts and is leading our higher education practice throughout the Buffalo-Niagara region, across New York State and beyond. His experience encompasses work with K-12, higher education and corporate clients and is evidenced on many campus communities, both large and small, public and private.

Mike has developed a keen understanding of the patterns in which students and faculty use educational facilities, and he appreciates the importance of creating spaces that embrace collaboration and support self-discovery. He also loves a challenge, and has tackled many in his time, including facilitating and leading diverse program committees, integrating elements of building design and planning, and renovating historically sensitive buildings into existing streetscapes. Mike’s creativity, drive and passion for architectural planning make him invaluable to his clients and colleagues alike.
