PKSB Architects

William B. Fellows, AIA


William Fellows, AIA
Principal

Among his peers and clients, William Fellows is recognized as an architect and designer with a remarkable eye for detail and a keen sense of the process of turning abstract ideas into functioning, elegant structures.

William Fellows has 30 years’ experience working on a variety of building types and programs. A particular design idiom has never constrained his approach to architectural design, which is reflected in the broad range of his projects. While his work is pragmatically or typologically diverse, Mr. Fellows’ method of expressing basic principles of proportion and scale, light and form are consistent. 

As such, William Fellows maintains a strong commitment in the areas of research and technologies as well as the application of traditional techniques for optimum performance. For him, each project is unique, requiring a commitment to the problem solving appropriate to the needs of the client, the site and the budget. A dedicated academic, William Fellows teaches as well as practices and pursues study in the advancement of the art and science of architecture. He has taught design, history and theory at Columbia University and Ball State University. 

Mr. Fellows initially began his career at PKSB in 1979. After winning the competition for the New York Vietnam Veterans Memorial, he opened his own office to execute the contract documents and to oversee the construction of the Memorial. Following the competition, he continued to produce award-winning public and private projects. In the spring of 2007 Mr. Fellows returned to PKSB as a principal after having collaborated with them on the Allen-Stevenson School renovations and additions.
