David Dixon leads Goody Clancy’s Planning and Urban Design division. His work has won national awards from the American Institute of Architects, Congress for the New Urbanism, Society for College and University Planning, and American Society of Landscape Architects. The Boston Globe’s architecture critic hailed the “Civic Vision for Turnpike Air Rights in Boston” as Boston’s “most ambitious planning endeavor since Olmsted’s Emerald Necklace.” In 2007 David was honored with the AIA's Thomas Jefferson Award for Public Architecture for his achievements in support of the public sector and Residential Architecture Magazine named David as the recipient of their 2012 Hall of Fame award. In 2013 the American Planning Association selected Goody Clancy as the third recipient of their Excellence in Planning Award to a Firm.
David served as 2003 President of the Boston Society of Architects (the local AIA Chapter) and chair of the 2003 national conference on “Density: Myth and Reality.” He writes and speaks frequently about emerging urban opportunities and challenges, including a talk this June in China on “Fixing broken urbanism” that focused on issues of globalization and resilience. He is currently a member of the Urban Land Institute’s Global Awards jury. David is a coauthor of Urban Design for an Urban Century which will be published in its second edition by Wiley in early 2014. He earned a Bachelor of Arts from Wesleyan University, Master of Architecture from University of Pennsylvania, and Master of Urban Design from Harvard University.
