Doug Powell grew up in the Dallas area where he started his architecture career at the age of 13 working for his father at Architecture Unlimited. During that time he learned valuable CAD skills and the fundamentals of putting buildings together. He attended UT School of Architecture from 1997-2002 and has been with Kinney & Associates since 2003. He has contributed to a wide array of project types during his tenure at K&A and has been instrumental in helping bring a varied cast of clients to the firm. In his free time Doug is a die-hard Longhorns football fan and when not donning burnt orange you’ll likely see him rooting for his other favorite team, the Dallas Stars.
Girard Kinney, AIA, is a lifelong Austinite, graduate of the UT Austin School of Architecture and owner of Kinney & Associates (K&A), an urban design and architectural firm, founded in 1978 as the partnership of Billington Kinney Stone. He is a past president of the Austin AIA, co-founded its Committee on the Environment and currently serves on the Government Affairs/Urban Design Committee. He is a founding member of the local chapter of the Congress for New Urbanism and is founding Chair of the Cherrywood Neighborhood Association. Mr. Kinney was the Project Architect for the Pfluger Bridge, the pedestrian and bicycle bridge across Lady Bird Lake, adjacent historic Lamar Bridge in downtown Austin, and in a JV with Sinclair Black, he co-produced the Great Streets Master Plan for downtown Austin.
Mr. Kinney’s involvement with Mueller, the redevelopment of Austin’s original municipal airport dates from 1983 where he helped organize CARE (Citizens for Airport Relocation) and the “Move it!” campaign, and then remained involved as the planning for Mueller was undertaken, culminating in his Chairmanship of the TF that produced the 1986 Report to the City Council that established the Vision and Goals for the redevelopment. Throughout he has been involved both as a neighborhood representative and a professional architect and planner, the most recent example being the successful completion of the E51st Street Vision, a joint project with McCann Adams Sudio, which borders Mueller on the north, dividing it, but potentially connecting it with, Windsor Park, the neighborhood to the north.
