Edward Dionne


“I’ve always been drawn to the similarities between architecture and music — the attention to composition and structure, the rhythm and motion, the layering of events and progression, the thrill of being part of a collective. Both disciplines create four-dimensional forms that you fully inhabit.”

Edward Dionne leads corporate, institutional, transportation, and large-scale placemaking projects, including the Salesforce Tower in San Francisco and the South Station multi-phase air rights development in Boston — both forward-looking models for transit-centered community development. He is currently leading the design for Texas Tower, which will redefine the concept of live, work, play in Houston. Ed has taught at Temple University and the Architectural Resource Center. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Architecture and a Bachelor of Architecture from Pennsylvania State University.

Favorite Building: The Woolworth Building, in New York City, by Cass Gilbert, because it reminds me of my grandfather.
