Dallas Architecture Forum Lecture Series: Jonathan Segal
Throughout the past 20 years Jonathan Segal, FAIA, has created and modeled the unique practice of "Architect as Developer." He has designed, developed, and constructed national award-winning single-family live/work residences and medium to high-density mixed-use housing in downtown San Diego and La Jolla, California. Jonathan Segal’s firm has been responsible for the design and development of over 300 medium to high-density urban residential, mixed-use, and live/work units totaling over 300,000 square feet of construction. Segal is considered one of downtown San Diego's most successful and pioneering residential architectural/development companies and has a reputation for providing superior housing at a lower cost than comparable properties. The firm’s focus is on urban projects, ranging from 80 to 160 dwelling units per acre. Jonathan Segal has been the recipient of numerous accolades including 24 local, state and national AIA awards for residential projects and urban design.
Due to his success practicing architecture as a developer, Segal’s goal is to promote this method of architectural practice to other architects, so they also can have control, pride, and financial independence. Jonathan Segal FAIA & Development Company has been awarded six national AIA Honor Awards for their housing work, including a 2015 AIA Honor Award for Housing.
