Donald Taylor-Patterson

Associate, Philadelphia Office

Donald’s work reflects his training in urban planning, his experience in design, and his passion for tackling the unique challenges U3’s clients face.

As an associate at U3, Donald utilizes data analytics, visual representation tools, and strategy to help clients develop and implement visions for their communities. He is energized by getting to know new places and tackling the unique challenges facing the clients he works with, which include schools like the University of North Dakota and Delaware Valley University, cities like the City of Memphis, and philanthropies, like the Hyde Foundation. His work helping these institutions is informed by his prior experience as a Project Manager & Designer for a design-build firm, where he helped clients envision a range of projects, navigate complicated city permitting processes, and coordinate the various contractors, suppliers, and others involved in the development of new projects. Outside the office, Donald enjoys discovering the best local coffee shops in whatever city he is in, and learning new board games with friends.

Donald holds a BA in Architecture and a Certificate in Urban Studies from Princeton University, where he won the School of Architecture Urbanism thesis prize, and a Masters in Urban Planning from Harvard University.
