Mr.Robert E. Chisholm, FAIA, NCARB, graduated in 1973 from the University of Florida with a Bachelors in Architecture and in 1977 from the University of Miami with a Masters in Urban Design. His interest in architecture was founded during his childhood in Havana, Cuba amongst the colonial, baroque, neo-classical and art deco architecture. At the University of Florida, under the guidance of Harry Merritt, architecture became his passion in life.
His actual career in architecture and urban planning began as a member at the Metro-Dade County Manager’s Office in the Office of Community and Economic Development (OCED) during the 1970’s. Mr. Chisholm was lead principal planner in charge of planning and implementation of capital improvement projects in several urban neighborhoods such as Edison Little River, Downtown Miami and South Beach. While at the OCED he developed and strengthened relationships with members of the Federal, State, County and City governments in planning, funding and implementation of projects; which would later prove invaluable in the growth of his career and future firm.
In 1983, Mr. Chisholm was a finalist for the post of Assistant Secretary of Transportation for the United States Department of Transportation under President Ronald Reagan.
