Shannon McLain – Architectural designer
Shannon is fascinated by the the impact on well-being in all scales of design; from a small scale, like how natural fibers can increase ones focus, to a larger scale, like how bicycle roots in Copenhagen can improve ones emotional health, she believes that the relationship between design and quality of everyday life is important to examine at every scale. Because of this, Shannon often works on Interior Architecture projects at Stanev Potts Architects, focusing on curating conceptual experiences and sensory rich environments.
Shannon McLain holds a Bachelor of Architecture from Jefferson University, formerly known as Philadelphia University. During her studies, Shannon minored in Architectural History and Theory, which allowed her to guest publish at Hidden City and The Pennsylvania State Historic Preservation Office Blog, as well as was awarded the inaugural “Docomomo US/Greater Philadelphia Center for Preservation of Modernism Award” for her work with Richard Neutral’s Hassrick House. Shannon continues to analyze Modernist principles of well-being in her research to “Re-Humanize Design”
