JOHN E. DAVIDSON, AIA
John and his wife Deidre made Kansas City their home in 1987. They have two children; Joshua and Jordan.
John began his career in Kansas City working in the medical design field, but soon moved on to pursue other opportunities in the design-build commercial field.
Coming from a family of carpenters and lay people, John enjoys applying his nuts and bolts knowledge with his architectural education. Understanding how the pieces fit together garners respect from his peers in all facets of the design and construction phases.
John ventured into his own practice in 1995 with the formation of DA+E (1995 - present). Founded on the principals of creativity, commitment, communication and innovation, DA+E flourished from a one person shop to a 13 plus person multi-discipline firm.
DA+E is recognized as a premier architectural and engineering firm in the Midwest region, focusing on design-build and a team oriented approach. John’s philosophy of “mutual respect” for all persons involved in the design and construction process, has led to partnerships and teams that are not only successful, but have stood the test of time.
