Personnel File - January 2008: architects

Rence Callahan, Vice President
Walter, Robbs, Callahan & Pierce Architects, Winston-Salem

One of three managing partners, Callahan, 57, studied at UVA and UNC Charlotte. Favorite Project: Winston-Salem’s downtown transportation center. Why he’s a green designer: ”I traveled to Alaska a couple of years ago and visited a glacier on the Kenai Peninsula. It was thought-provoking to see it today and see pictures of where it was 50 years ago and how quickly it’s melting.” Why he wants to bring pro soccer to the Twin City: “A pro sports team is the most phenomenal way to get people who are different to come together. An executive and a cab driver can sit in stands and cheer for the same team.”
