Sean Stadler, FAIA, LEED AP Mr. Stadler is a Design Principal and Managing Principal of WDG where he focuses on elevating the firm’s stature in design, with particular emphasis on enhancing the civic realm. Mr. Stadler takes a strong leadership role and his commitment to design excellence and innovative thinking and influences the projects with which he is involved. He believes that design is a process that begins not with a brief, program, or even a charette, but rather with the people from which ideas flow. His example shows that leadership is a two-way street; it involves the ability to influence others and be receptive to the needs of those you lead. In his worldview, design excellence is not the application of certain techniques or the realization of inborn talent, but the development of a latent understanding for the negotiations that are at the heart of architecture—negotiations between site and program, client and designer, architect and engineer.

Mr. Stadler has been honored with an AIA President’s Award for his service to the profession and was recognized as one of the "rising stars of the AEC industry" by Building Design + Construction Magazine in 2009. He is a recipient of the 2011 AIA Young Architects award where the jury noted that "he is a unique individual of outstanding talent and clear commitment."
