Tom Thompson, M.Arch.

Tom Thompson has over 25 years of experience in architecture, planning, construction and education. In addition to his architecture practice, Tom teaches architectural design courses at RMCAD. Tom earned his BA in Architecture from Iowa State University and his Master’s Degree in Architecture from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Tom chose to practice architecture because of his belief that everyone has the power to improve the human environment through the realization of thoughtful design. He believes strongly in a multi-disciplinary approach to both design and education, and that the successful design professional must have a strong appreciation of the human sense of place, the multitude of disciplines intertwined in the creation of architecture, and in the many paradoxes that all designers strive to resolve in order to create a better world.
