Roger K. Lewis

Roger K. Lewis, FAIA, is an architect and urban planner, a professor emeritus of architecture at the University of Maryland at College Park, and an author and journalist.
After earning two architecture degrees at MIT and serving as a Peace Corps volunteer architect in Tunisia during the 1960s, Lewis helped start the architecture program at
the University of Maryland School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation, where he taught architectural design from 1968 to 2006. A practitioner throughout his teaching career, his Washington-based architecture firm has designed or co-designed a wide range of award-winning projects. In 1998, the U.S. General Services Administration appointed Lewis to its Design Excellence National Peer Committee, which reviews the design of federal projects, and he serves periodically as a GSA design consultant. He is also a planning and architectural design consultant to other metropolitan Washington-area government agencies. His columns and cartoons have received numerous awards and have been republished nationally and internationally. In 1984, Lewis launched his architecture-themed, illustrated column, “Shaping the City,” in The Washington Post. He is the author or co-author of numerous journal articles and books, most recently the 2013 third edition of Architect? A Candid Guide to the Profession.
