Throughout his professional career, David Miller has integrated teaching and practice to the point they are treated as one entity – “like breathing”. He would never be able to do one without the other. His aim for both has been to achieve design excellence. He finds as much pleasure in seeing a remarkable student project emerge due to his mentoring, as in producing an award winning project on his own drafting table. Miller is known nationally for pursuing innovative sustainable and high performance design strategies, while responding to each site’s unique conditions surrounding its context. Although he has been involved in all types of projects, he has served as the design partner on the majority of the multi-family urban residential projects at Miller Hull.
