David Burns, AIA

Principal - Mumbai, New York, Washington, DC

A valuable member of the STUDIOS team for more than 10 years, David is constantly challenging the idea that space is a limitation.

He began his career with four years in STUDIOS Paris office. His approach to design is that space—no matter its size or shape—is an opportunity. Adept with the big picture and minute details, David’s spectrum of experience ranges from base building and master planning to building renovation and complex office projects. He has played an integral role in designing several of STUDIOS’ most complex and award-winning projects including Washington Canal Park, The USO Family Centers, Chelsea Market, and 200 Fifth Avenue.
