A Fellow of the American Institute of Architects, Frank has taught at the University of California, Berkeley, conducted many panels and charrettes in the United States, and won numerous awards for both urban design and architecture.
Frank believes that downtowns, Main Streets and neighborhoods are the cores of a new humane American urbanism. Much of his career has focused on designing frameworks and strategies that create vital cities through transit-oriented development and community design. Frank explains that, “Having the perspective to understand the views of different project stakeholders allows us to devise teams and processes for successful and creative urban design.”
A national expert in smart growth and transit-oriented development, Frank has helped communities and cities transform their downtowns and neighborhoods into healthy, connected, pedestrian-oriented places. Frank understands the perspectives of public agencies, developers, and community groups in building and revitalizing communities. Frank’s current transit related projects include urban design plans around High Speed Rail stations in San Jose and Anaheim, California, and around several BART stations in the San Francisco Bay region.
