Associate Principal

Chris Putman


Chris believes great work starts with great relationships. As our San Diego team lead, Chris oversees the delivery of projects that span the greater Southern California region. He is always on a quest to artfully balance form and function. He draws inspiration in collaborating with design teams to reach aha! moments—solving complex problems with elegant solutions. During his time as an Adjunct Lecturer at Georgia Tech, Chris taught architects structural engineering with an emphasis on creative collaboration. He frequently lectures on a wide variety of topics including the application of advanced technology, seismic performance, and unique design solutions.

In his spare time, you will find him exploring local beaches with his wife and son, or hiking San Diego’s Mission Trails with his beloved rescue dog Kit (who, unlike Chris, prefers to destroy things rather than create).
