Brooks WalkerPartner, RA, LEED AP
“Our goal is to create well-designed architecture that withstands the test of time. A building should feel right today, as well as 50 years from now.”
Brooks draws inspiration from various architectural styles and architects, but his greatest influence is William Wurster, admired for the simplicity and precision of his work. He spent many holidays in one of Wurster’s ranch-style homes, reminiscent of those found in John Steinbeck’s countryside. During this time, he developed a strong appreciation for architecture integrated into the landscape.
Brooks is deeply involved in community service and serves on the boards and committees of several organizations, including the Wild Salmon Center, Hamlin School, Shasta Forest Timberlands, Sugar Bowl Ski Corporation, and the Ploughshares Fund Investment Committee. He has previously served on the boards and committees of SPUR, Aim High, Walker Art Center, and the SFMOMA Department of Architecture and Design Accessions Committee.
