Josh Harrold is an Associate Principal at BNIM with nearly two decades of experience creating a body of work that has received regional and national awards. Josh is focused on the intersections of architecture, landscape, interiors, objects, and technologies, with a mission to improve the relationship between people’s needs, desires, and capacities in the built environment. Josh is an ideas based architect who operates between the duality of equaled and bound excitement and focus, idealism and pragmatism, physical and metaphysical. He believes design is essential to quality of life and rooted in thorough analysis, rigorous investigation, and meticulous execution.
Most recently, Josh applied this approach to the design of the Missouri State University Ozarks Education Center; a Master Plan for the Springfield Art Museum; and the new Fine Arts + Design Studios and Career and Technical Education Center at Johnson County Community College. He has also worked on the firm’s headquarters, Building Positive, a prototype for the interplay of four of the most stringent sustainable design standards.
Prior to joining BNIM, Josh worked on a wide variety of project types that includes a LEED Platinum carbon neutral fire station in Dallas that is helping to establish future city project delivery requirements; work for Missouri State University; USGBC North Texas Green Building Resource Center; and the AIA National award-winning Exeter Schools.
