Event Meet 2018 TxA President Mike McGlone
Join AIA Austin as we welcome Mike McGlone, AIA! Mike is the current President-Elect for the TxA, ready to serve as President in 2018.
All Members and Allied Members are welcome, so join us for lunch (on us!) to give Mike a hearty Austin welcome!
Mike grew up in the SE Houston suburb of Pasadena and attended the School of Architecture at the University of Texas at Austin. After graduation he remained in Austin working for Sinclair Black, FAIA until moving to New York City where he spent his internship (then called “apprenticeship”) primarily at Hardy Holzman Pfeiffer Associates. In 1983, after a visit to Texas in October, he convinced an innocent young woman from Kansas that the weather in south central Texas “was just like California” and they decamped New York City for San Antonio. With UT classmates, Irby Hightower, Mike Lanford and Billy Lawrence, Alamo Architects was founded in 1984. Their broad practice of 55+ is focused on K-12, Higher Education, Retail and Commercial Development, Preservation and Adaptive Reuse, Multi-Family, Interiors, Urban Design, Civic Engagement and Master Planning.
In addition to his leadership at Alamo, he has taught at UT Austin and UT San Antonio, lead mission trips to the Texas, Mexico border, served with variety of non-profit and civic organizations and is the current citizen architect, curmudgeon-in-residence on the City of Alamo Heights Architectural Review Board.
He is still married to the forgiving, now not so innocent, Ann Benson McGlone, AIA. Ann and Mike have two grown sons and one brand new granddaughter.
Mike has been a member of AIA since 1997 and has served a number of leadership positions with AIA San Antonio and the Texas Society of Architects.
